Resilience and Recovery: The Path Ahead plan
The easiest way to close a claim for the Pandemic Unemployment Payment is online via www.MyWelfare.ie
Any worker returning to work with an enquiry about closing their claim, can contact the Department’s dedicated income support helpline at 1890 800 024 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday to Friday.
The payment period of the COVID-19 Pandemic Unemployment Payment is Friday to Thursday. Where a worker has at least one qualifying day of work in the period Friday to Thursday, they will receive full payment for that week. A person who closes their claim to return to work on any day other than Friday (the first day in the week) will receive payment for the full PUP entitlement week.
And remember, any period of paid holidays is considered to be a period of insurable employment in the same way as if the employee was in work.
