Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection
Social Welfare Benefits Payments
231. To ask the Minister for Employment Affairs and Social Protection if the circumstances surrounding the QAA payment for a person (details supplied) will be considered to reinstate the payment; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [50491/19]
Increase for qualified adult is a means tested payment, based on the means of the qualified adult. Following a recent means review, the qualified adult increase was stopped.
Based on updated information, the means of the qualified adult were reviewed and the person concerned now qualifies for a reduced payment. Notification of this decision issued to the person concerned on 2 December 2019.
I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
