Since 14 March 2024, people coming to Ireland from Ukraine who register for temporary protection and State-provided accommodation, can be accommodated for a maximum of 90 days in a Designated Accommodation Centre.

A Beneficiary of Temporary Protection Weekly Payment of €38.80 for an adult and €29.80 for a child will be paid. A monthly Child Benefit payment will also be paid for qualifying children.

Beneficiaries of Temporary Protection who are not in State-provided accommodation can apply for social welfare payments in the same way as Irish citizens if they meet the eligibility conditions.

People from Ukraine who arrived in Ireland before 14 March 2024 and registered for temporary protection are not affected by these changes.

The Accommodation Recognition Payment has been extended and will continue until 31 March 2025.
