Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection
Exceptional Needs Payment Applications
212. To ask the Minister for Employment Affairs and Social Protection if consideration will be given to exceptional needs or other appropriate payments in the case of a person (details supplied); and if she will make a statement on the matter. [45967/19]
According to the records of my Department an application for an exceptional needs payment (ENP) has not been received from the person concerned.
An application form was issued to the person concerned on 6/11/19. When the necessary documentation has been received an Officer of my Department will assess the application and contact the person concerned with a decision.
I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
