If you are registered as a jobseeker (in other words, signing-on with the Department of Social Protection), you should inform your Intreo centre or local social welfare office of the date when you are going to start work. In some areas you can do this online.
Notifying your Intreo centre or local social welfare 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 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, Family Income Supplement (FIS).
