274. To ask the Minister for Employment Affairs and Social Protection when a one parent family allowance will be restored in the case of a person (details supplied); and if she will make a statement on the matter. [32814/21]
In line with standard practice, a review of One Parent Family Payment entitlement was undertaken in the case of the person concerned on 22/4/2021. The person concerned was asked to provide relevant information/documentation in order to complete this review. Payment was suspended when means could not be determined as certain information regarding a number of bank accounts was not provided by the person concerned when requested.
Payment was reinstated on 21/06/2021 when the required information was provided.
I trust this clarifies the matter.
