We’re moving to gov.ie
  • From Monday, 2 December 2019, the website of the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection (www.welfare.ie)  will be moving to a new single Government of Ireland website called gov.ie. The move follows a Government Decision in late 2017.

    gov.ie will be a single, easy-to-use and trusted source for people seeking information on Government supports, services and policies. The gov.ie site allows customers to find information on all Government services on a single website, with information in plain English and content designed to best meet our customers' needs.

    To date the following departments have gone live on gov.ie
  • Rural and Community Development
  • Taoiseach
  • Public Expenditure and Reform
  • Finance
  • Transport, Tourism and Sport
  • Children and Youth Affairs
  • Health
  • Defence
This list will be updated as more departments move to gov.ie.  You can see the list here 
Feedback from users of the new website has been very positive and we hope all our customers will find it a useful and easy to access source of information on our Department’s many schemes and services. Please see below answers to some questions you may have about the new site. 

What does the move to gov.ie mean for me ?

·         Information on our 89 schemes and services will be easy to find and easier to read. 
·         contact information, opening hours, locations will be easily accessible – our homepage will be available at www.gov.ie

When will the move to gov.ie happen and when will it be complete?

The move from our old website (www.welfare.ie) to gov.ie will happen from 2 December 2019, when information on schemes and services will move to gov.ie. This will mean when you access our schemes and services on welfare.ie, you may notice you have been redirected to our new pages on gov.ie. 

All DEASP content will be available on gov.ie by Spring 2020

What will happen to welfare.ie?

Once our move is complete all welfare.ie archived content will be available as a web archive at the National Library website here
