How did this work out?

Hi, I am currently in the same predicament. I am due to start temporary work for no more than 2 weeks, However, I have applied for an internship position. How does this affect your eligibility for the internship or starting your own business.

You will have to sign off for the two weeks and when restarting your claim bring in any payslips with you to dole office in order to see if your wages have put you over the means level.

Short-term employment or training

The Department of Social Protection operates a fast-tracking system for people who sign off a jobseeker's payment to take up work for a short period (up to 4 weeks) or to go on a short training course (up to 8 weeks).



This ensures that your payment is re-instated without delay. It is important that you inform your local social welfare office in advance that you are taking up work or training.

This will not affect you eligibility for an internship or back to work enterprise allowance as the claims will link. Its quite possible that your claim will only be payment suspended as the temporary work is only for 2 weeks. You will not have to bring in payslips for the 2 weeks worked as this will have no affect on your means.
