Welfare Info

The Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection (DEASP) has issued information on coronavirus for employers and employees.

It includes information about expected changes to the Illness Benefit and Supplementary Welfare Allowance rules, to help prevent transmission. You can download the leaflet HERE.

If you are diagnosed with COVID-19, or are medically required to self-isolate, you can get income support such as Illness Benefit or Supplementary Welfare Allowance from the DEASP.
