S.I. No. 243 of 2013.

SOCIAL WELFARE (CONSOLIDATED CONTRIBUTIONS AND INSURABILITY) (AMENDMENT) (NO. 3) (CREDITS) REGULATIONS 2013

EXPLANATORY NOTE

Section 10 of the Social Welfare and Pensions (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 2013 provides for amendments to the Jobseeker's Allowance scheme to cater for the transition of persons to that scheme who no longer qualify for One-Parent Family Payment due to their youngest child reaching specified age thresholds (to be known as Jobseeker's Allowance Transition).

These Regulations provide for the award of credited contributions to recipients of Jobseeker's Allowance Transition where they had been receiving another social welfare payment immediately before claiming Jobseeker's Allowance Transition and had been entitled to have credited contributions awarded while in receipt of that social welfare payment.
