Jobseekers – Will it affect my Work and Social Welfare Payments?


This depends on a number of factors:

What social welfare entitlements you are receiving, disability payments and secondary benefits.


The amount earned and the number of hours that you will be working.


With certain benefits you will have to apply for an exemption to allow you to take up employment.


For further information contact your Community Welfare Officer or look up on or call your local Citizens Information Centre.
