Not enough PRSI? JSA which is means tested.
If you get sick then it will be illness benefit also PRSI based and €203 and dependents means tested.
Sick and not enough PRSI? SWA from the CWO which is means tested.
If you decide yourself that you are not going to work because you’re afraid that you’re at risk then you will have to talk to SW.
Yeah amazing. My paranoid boss just laid off the whole company until further notice.
So I went to the new welfare website and tried to apply but they say 'you need to visit a local Intreo center to verify your phone number'.
Amazing, so now I have to join a line of people to apply which defeats the point of social distancing.
Or are these Intreo centers now closed?
