S.I. No. 320 of 2011.

SOCIAL WELFARE (CONSOLIDATED CLAIMS, PAYMENTS AND CONTROL) (AMENDMENT) (No. 2) (JOBSEEKER'S PAYMENTS) REGULATIONS 2011

EXPLANATORY NOTE

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

Section 7 of the Social Welfare (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 2010 amended the qualifying conditions for Jobseeker's Benefit to provide for a disqualification for receipt of this payment in the case of people engaged in full-time education.

These Regulations provide that the disqualification for receipt of Jobseeker's Benefit will not apply in the case of mature students during the period between two academic years, generally the summer months. During this period a mature student can apply for Jobseeker's Benefit subject to satisfying the standard qualifying conditions including that of being available for full-time work.

These Regulations also provide that the disqualification for receipt of Jobseeker's Benefit or Allowance will not apply to recipients aged between age 18 and 21 years who are deemed to be available for work while attending certain approved courses of education.
