What other services are available on MyWelfare?

If you lose your job you can no longer apply for the COVID-19 Pandemic Unemployment Payment. However, you may be entitled to receive a Jobseeker’s Payment.


Working Family Payment (WFP) is a weekly tax-free payment for employees with children. It supports people who are on low pay. WFP used to be called Family Income Supplement (FIS)


If you are diagnosed with COVID-19 or instructed by a doctor or the HSE to self-isolate or restrict your movements, the Enhanced Illness Benefit for COVID-19 is still available to you at the rate of €350.
