S.I. No. 36 of 2014.

SOCIAL WELFARE (CONSOLIDATED SUPPLEMENTARY WELFARE ALLOWANCE) (AMENDMENT) (NO. 1) (DIET SUPPLEMENT) REGULATIONS 2014

EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Instrument and does not purport to be a legal interpretation.)

These Regulations provide for the discontinuance of the Diet Supplement in the case of new applicants from 1 February 2014. Under these Regulations, existing recipients of Diet Supplement will continue to receive the Supplement on and after 1 February 2014 for as long as they continue to be medically assessed as requiring a special diet but in such a case, where the recipient's weekly means increase, the amount of the Diet Supplement payable will be reassessed in the light of such increase in weekly means.

Where a recipient of Diet Supplement continues to receive payment on and after 1 February 2014 in accordance with these Regulations, payment of the Supplement will be discontinued if the recipient moves into institutional care. In addition, where the Supplement is being paid in respect of a qualified child of the claimant, payment of the Supplement will be discontinued when that child reaches 18 years, or 22 years if attending college.
