fissection@welfare.ie

They answered pretty quickly aswell

This is the reply I got from them on the 10th December

Form ok. It will be treated as a new application from Sept. However there is a backlog in this section and it is intended that all of the claims in the backlog will be cleared by April 2013 at the latest.

Regards

Did you got to your CWO to get supplement while your waiting????

I'm recieving it at the moment so I guess that means I'm entitled to it and they will deduct it from any back pay I'm due

It doesnt matter that your not on minimum wage. As long as you are working 20 hrs per week and earn less than €505 per week for one child.

I was refused the first time as my hours had changed 5 months before I was assessed. Instead of accepting my new wage, they used an average of the previous 42 weeks wages. This, coupled with my partners payment was to high for a FIS payment.

I may be in the same position as you Lollydolly. Im under a training contract for 3.5 years, this being my first year. I am earning less than minimum wage and just hope it doesnt affect my entitlements.

Being on less than min wage won't effect the claim but DSP will contact NERA who will investigate the employer, to insure all is above board.
