    Thomas Pringle asked the Minister for Social Protection if she will reinstate the exceptional needs payment for persons who are offered accommodation by local authorities under the long term leasing scheme and contact the Department of the Environment Community and Local Government to ensure that the contracts with local authorities are reviewed to ensure that houses offered are furnished in the future and if she will make a statement on the matter 36204 11 Minister for Social Protection Deputy Joan Burton Under the supplementary welfare allowance SWA scheme the Department may make a single payment to help meet essential once off exceptional expenditure which a person could not reasonably be expected to meet out of their weekly income Those who qualify are normally in receipt of a social welfare or HSE payment The principal consideration in making a single payment of SWA to address a particular need is that the need to be met must be exceptional Payments should arise only under abnormal conditions and should not become a regular or standard practice Every decision is based on the careful consideration of all the circumstances of an individual case In general it is not considered appropriate that exceptional needs payments should be made towards the costs of furnishing private rented accommodation In this regard my Department will as the Deputy suggests be raising this matter with the Department of the Environment Community and Local Government Be Sociable Share Previous Story Ambulance Service as full members of the Emergency Services Next Story Deputy Pringle asks Minister Coveney to provide a list of the timetable for the Nautra 2000 Bays About admin Contact Info Killybegs Constituency Office Connolly House Bridge Street Killybegs Co Donegal 074 97 41880 thomas pringle oir ie Latest News Look out for my General Election 2016 newsletter February

  • Applications for domiciliary care allowance – Thomas Pringle TD
    allowance By admin Tweet Pin It Updated 26th October 2011 Deputy Pringle received an answer to a Dáil Question he tabled to Joan Burton T D Minister for Social Protection asking the number of applications for domiciliary care allowance received by her in the past year The number that were refused and the number for children with autism spectrum disorders and aspergers syndrome that have been refused The Deputy was shocked as the refusal rate seems to be rising at a worrying rate With 1603 refused applications in 2009 2757 in 2010 and 1198 up to May of this year Deputy Pringle said Recently the administering of this allowance has transferred from the HSE to the Department of Social Protection and this may have removed some of the discretionary nature of the application process Considering there is over 200 applications in Appeals as we are only half through 2011 one would assume it is deliberate ploy on the Departments part to refuse over half applications since taken over this scheme from the HSE Families are in a difficult enough situation and to have this difficulty with Domiciliary Care does not make sense It appears that the department is targeting this allowance for special treatment Be Sociable Share Previous Story Speed Camera s being operated not only to be located in certain areas only to generate Revenue Next Story Dungloe Community Hospital About admin Contact Info Killybegs Constituency Office Connolly House Bridge Street Killybegs Co Donegal 074 97 41880 thomas pringle oir ie Latest News Look out for my General Election 2016 newsletter February 11 2016 12 59 pm DONEGAL NOW Donegal TD reveals Minister Lynch will not meet with Save Our St Joseph s Campaign February 11 2016 11 24 am DONEGAL NOW Calls on Burton to provide additional funding

  • Speed Camera’s being operated not only to be located in certain areas only to generate Revenue? – Thomas Pringle TD
    a major factor in road traffic collisions and fatalities I am informed by the Garda authorities that in preparation for the roll out of the network An Garda Síochána in conjunction with the National Roads Authority carried out an extensive analysis of the collision history of the road network as a result of which sections of road were identified where a significant proportion of collisions where speed was deemed the primary contributory factor occurred Based on this analysis a list of speed enforcement zones has been developed with the aim of providing information to motorists in order to raise awareness of the danger of speeding in these zones An Garda Síochána utilises this information to direct speed enforcement activity in a proportionate and targeted manner Information on the location of these speed enforcement zones is publicly available on the Garda website www garda ie Surveys are conducted on an ongoing basis to ensure that the safety cameras continue to be deployed on roads which are identified as being subject to inappropriate speed and where fatal and injury collisions occur It is also the objective of the safety cameras directly operated by An Garda Síochána to reduce the number of speed related collisions and so save lives Deputy Noel Grealish also asked the Minister for Justice and Equality if his attention has been drawn to the fact that the operators of speed detection vans in at least two locations details supplied in County Galway are issuing fixed charge notices to motorists containing the incorrect address with regard to the location at which the speeding offence occurred the number of motorists who have had their fines returned and penalty points removed as a direct result of these errors and if he will make a statement on the matter 29523 11 Minister for

  • Self Employed to claim Jobseeker’s Benefit in the Event that their Business Closes or if they are out of Work – Thomas Pringle TD
    employees resulting in the payment of a combined 14 75 rate per employee under full rate PRSI Class A For employees earning less than 356 per week the rate of employer s PRSI is 4 25 In this context it may be noted that self employed workers generally achieve better value for money by paying social insurance compared to employees In terms of benefits the 2005 Actuarial Review of the Social Insurance Fund found that a self employed contributor can expect to receive over 10 times what he or she contributes to the social insurance fund compared to the employee who on average only gets 3 times what he and his employer contribute despite the fact that the range of benefits available to employees is greater It should be noted that the State pension contributory increased in excess of inflation and earnings growth in the period up to 2010 while annuities offer CPI linked increases at best The market cost of an inflation linked annuity with 12 000 a year in initial benefits is in excess of 300 000 without any associated survivor s benefits Any changes to the PRSI system in order to provide access to short term benefits such as jobseeker s benefit would have significant financial implications and would have to be considered in the context of a much more significant rise in the rate of contribution payable I have established the Advisory Group on Tax and Social Welfare earlier this year to meet the commitment made in the Programme for Government The Advisory Group will inter alia examine and report on issues involved in providing social insurance cover for self employed persons in order to establish whether or not such cover is technically feasible and financially sustainable I look forward to receiving their report The Deputy should be aware that self employed persons may establish eligibility to assistance based payments including payments such as jobseeker s allowance In general in assessment of means account will be taken of the level of earnings in the last twelve months in determining their expected income for the following year In the current climate account is taken of the downward trend in the economy ENDS KEY MESSAGES The rate self employed PRSI contribution is 4 Entitlement to long term benefits can be established A combined rate of 14 75 is paid in respect of employees who have entitlement to both long term and short term benefits including jobseekers benefit 4 is paid by employees and 10 75 by their employers Extension of entitlement to short term benefits including job seekers benefit would have significant cost implications The 2005 Actuarial Review of the Social Insurance Fund found that a male married self employed contributor earning gross average industrial wages had a value for money index of 10 3 compared to an index of 3 1 for an equivalent employee In basic terms this means that with regard to benefits the self employed contributor can expect to receive over 10 times what
