S.I. No. 235 of 2013.

SOCIAL WELFARE (CONSOLIDATED CLAIMS, PAYMENTS AND CONTROL) (AMENDMENT) (NO. 3) (FAMILY INCOME SUPPLEMENT) REGULATIONS 2013

EXPLANATORY NOTE

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

In general, when Family Income Supplement (FIS) is awarded it continues to be paid at the same weekly rate for a period of 52 weeks, regardless of any change of circumstances in the intervening period. However, where there is an increase in the number of children in the family, the weekly rate of FIS can be revised during this 52 week period.

These Regulations provide for the inclusion of an additional circumstance in which the weekly rate of FIS can be revised during the 52 week period. Where a recipient of FIS was also getting One-Parent Family Payment and that payment ceases by virtue of the youngest child having attained a specified age, the weekly rate of such FIS can be revised during the 52 week period to take account of the loss of that payment. These Regulations come into operation on 4th July 2013.
