Yes but there may be a disqualification period of up to 9 weeks (I think!) depending on the reason the person left the job. My daughter left a job once due to some unpleasant behaviour from her boss and was not disqualified from any weeks so it just depends, case by case basis.
What are peoples experience here who have retired from Public Service (pre 2004 entry), paying class A PRSI who are between ages 60 and 65 re waiting the full 9 weeks for the jobseekers benefit to kick in .
Or is it the policy generally to start paying out once retirement begins ?
