S.I. No. 38 of 2012
Social Welfare (Consolidated Claims, Payments and Control)(Amendment) (NO. 1) (Overlapping Benefits) Regulations 2012
(This note is not part of the Instrument and does not purport to be a legal interpretation.)
These Regulations provide for the discontinuation of entitlement to the payment of illness benefit, jobseeker’s benefit, injury benefit and incapacity supplement at half-rate to recipients of widows, widowers and surviving civil partners pensions, one-parent family payment and analogous payments, with effect from week commencing 30 January 2012. These provisions will apply to new claimants for illness benefit, jobseeker’s benefit, injury benefit and incapacity supplement, with the entitlement of existing recipients of such half-rate payments being protected for the balance of the period of entitlement to such payments.
