Eligability

Hi,

Quick question someone may be able to answer. When we applied for FIS I put on form I was receiving part-time JA, for 2 days per week, I signed off this week I made FIS application, but just wondering because I put it on application form, will I automatically be turned down for FIS or will they check to see I am no longer in receipt of this?

Thanks

They will check it out for you,it wont mean you will automatically refused.
You didnt need to sign off either,you could have stay on the casual JA and FIS would have decided if you were better off getting JA or FIS.

our application was received on the 10th of nov
i got a letter monday, dated the 15th of march refusing fis.

we were refused as the lady said we would be better off if myself and the kids were on my partner's BTEA claim.

i still dont get it.

if you add my wages and his btea per week together its no where near €606....

we have no other income.

i called them yesterday but the babies were crying and i had to hang up so ill try again today.

EDIT: got through to them again today, they were very helpful.

The income they have for me is based on the previous 43 weeks, including when i had a full time job!!

this amount is €100 more than i have been earning since last july.

This average puts us €15 over €606 per week....

So I have to re-apply again, now as we are entitled, its 43 weeks since i had a full time job.

it seems in this case, the advice given to me from the citizens information office was wrong...

does my employer fill out the form when im on maternity leave? Im not back till june.

Your employer needs to fill out the application with the info from the last 4 weeks before you went on maternity,then there is an average worked out between Mat leave and wages.

I would ring the person who refused you before you summit the new application and ask can you send it direct to them,it usually means it will not take as long to process it.

I have found that citizens information often given bad advice or are just not that familiar with certain schemes.TBH I would ask questions on this site quicker than go to the citizens info offices.

You must have been given wrong information as they are definitely working on claims with a start date of 17/11/11.
Your claim would be counted as a 17 November claim as payments only start from the first Thursday after the application is received in the FIS department.11/11/11 was a Friday so that would be then 17/11/11.

Do you have your acknowledgement letter to double check the date?
