Signing off when you start work

Information

You may get Jobseeker's Allowance, Jobseeker's Benefit or credits if you are registered as a jobseeker

If you are registered as a jobseeker (in other words, signing-on with the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection), you should inform your local Intreo Centre or Social Welfare Branch Office of the date when you are going to start work.

Notifying your Intreo Centre or Social Welfare Branch Office about when you are going to start work will ensure that you can get any payment due to you up to the date you start work.

You can also get advice about the possibly keeping some of your existing benefits and supports when you return to work. When you start work you may be entitled to additional benefits, for example, Working Family Payment (formerly known as Family Income Supplement or FIS).
