S.I. No. 24 of 2009.
SOCIAL WELFARE (CONSOLIDATED CLAIMS, PAYMENTS AND CONTROL) (AMENDMENT) (JOBSEEKER'S BENEFIT) REGULATIONS, 2009
(This note is not part of the instrument and does not purport to be a legal interpretation).
One of the qualifying conditions for entitlement for jobseeker's benefit is that the claimant has 13 qualifying contributions in the governing contribution year. These Regulations provide that a person who fails to satisfy this condition will qualify if he/she has 13 paid contributions in either of the two contribution years preceding the governing contribution year or in a subsequent contribution year. This provision will come into operation on the 5 January 2009.
