Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection
Social Welfare Payments
235. To ask the Minister for Employment Affairs and Social Protection if a person (details supplied) qualifies for the household benefits given their various illnesses; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [57234/22]
I wish to inform the Deputy that the person concerned is already in receipt of the Household Benefits Package, comprising an Electricity Allowance and Free TV Licence, since 6 January 2020. The Electricity Allowance is being credited to the person's Electric Ireland Bill, at the applicant's request.
I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
