Does anyone know how this works? Both my husband and I have worked for the last 20 yrs and (thank God) never had to claim it.
Anyhow, my hubby just had a hernia op and was out of work for two weeks. The first week, he put through as holidays – on advice from his boss. The second week, he got the social welfare form filled in and sent it off.
He got 94 euro for the week. I can see from http://www.welfare.ie that the payment is 188 per week for anyone who earns more than 300 euro. It also says that you do not get paid for the first three days. So is the 188 a payment made for the 7 days after the first 3????
How on earth could any married man with two children survive on 94 euro for the week???
