Or what about self-isolating and picking up the virus. You could be out of work for a month.
If you’re given a temporary lay off then subject to your PRSI record you might get JSB max payment €203 for a single person. Dependents are means tested.
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.
