Points to Note:

  • You should check carefully to see which benefits you may qualify for if you choose a worksharing arrangement that results in you getting less than 52 contributions in any year.
  • Make sure to keep in mind all your plans for the year. For example, if your worksharing arrangement gives you 39 PRSI contributions and you plan to take additional unpaid leave during the year, be sure to take this into account when checking your entitlement to benefits.
  • It is in your best interest to make sure that you receive a contribution, be it paid or credited, every week. See SW12.
  • For more information on social insurance payments, log on to www.welfare.ie.
  • If you do not qualify for any of the listed payments, you may qualify for a meanstested social assistance payment instead.
  • Since 27th September 2007 it may be possible to obtain a half rate Carer’s Allowance in addition to another social welfare entitlement. For more information, log on to www.welfare.ie.
