Hi - my daughter has been working in a creche which has been temporarily closed due to Covid 19. They have been advised they will not get paid. She does not have 2 years PRSI to quality for Job Seekers Benefit but can apply for Job Seekers Allowance. She lives at home with just 1 parent working but the means test would suggest that we exceed the allowance - will she even qualify for E40.00?

Thanks
