S.I. No. 90 of 2011.
SOCIAL WELFARE (CONSOLIDATED CLAIMS, PAYMENTS AND CONTROL) (AMENDMENT) (ONE-PARENT FAMILY PAYMENT) REGULATIONS 2011
Section 25 of the Social Welfare (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 2010 limits payment of one-parent family payment to lone parents where the youngest child is under 14 years of age.
Following the commencement of section 25 from 27 April 2011, these Regulations prescribe the circumstances in which a child aged between 18 and 22 years will be regarded as receiving full-time education, in the case of a lone parent entitled to continue to receive payment of one-parent family payment during the 2011 and 2012 academic years, by virtue of the provisions of section 178A(7) of the Social Welfare Consolidation Act 2005.
These Regulations also revoke the provisions of article 129 of the Social Welfare (Consolidated Claims, Payments and Control) Regulations 2007 as they are now set out in subsections (4) to (5B) of section 172A of the 2005 Consolidation Act.
