Hi MM's can ye help me with a question?

I found out today that I am being made redundant. I currently get €60 one parent family. I was on maternity leave in 2009 which I belive your PRSI or ''stamps' 'are calculated from.

My question if anyones knows it is,

do I go back to getting a full loan parents? or do I get the JSA which is calculated on 2009 when Im not sure I paid any PRSI. The place I work for didnt pay me my Maternity pay I got it from the governemt. Im scared that if I have to use my stamps til I find a job I wont have paid enough in 2009 and I will be left with nothing to live on.

I know Im not making alot of sense but if anyone knows the answer I would be so greatful. I guess Im just paniced and shook at reciveing the bleek news this morning.

Thanking you all in advance.

Didn't have time to read past the first post but need to ask this.

The company my DP works for will be closing down soon.Every month at least one employee is let go. The last guy to be let go is not getting any redundancy (apart from the government part) as the boss says there is no money left to pay him after paying all the other 10 or 12 staff already gone.
There are only 5 or 6 people left in the company, DP included.
What happens if the boss refuses to pay DP his part of the redundancy? Will we have to take him to court?

Thank you with all the help you can give - i am starting to panic here :(

Hi Lounhy
As far as I know he will still get the statutary redundancy from the government which is 2 weeks pay for every year he worked there.He won't get it straight away but my bil got his about 10 wks later. As for taking him to court .... just look at what's happening in Vita Cortex in Cork :mad: :mad:
Makes me so mad that employers are now starting to not pay redunancies claiming they have no money left :onfire: :onfire:
And please try not to worry (even though I know it's hard not to )
Big Hugs :bigups:

Tickle81 - when you are on maternity leave getting statutory maternity benefit from social welfare you are counted as being in employment (i.e. having a stamp or PRSI paid for those weeks) so you should still have the necessary PRSI contributions for that year. Also if your wages were below the threshold for paying PRSI your employer would still have paid an employers contribution for you so you should be fine.

Mrs Dara - your husband should apply for JSA anyway. My wages are good enough and DH works part time - our combined wages are above the FIS threshold for our family size and my husband still qualified for a reduced payment (not much but anything is good).

Income after tax, mortgage and commuting costs should be under €457 per week to get a GP only card for a couple with one child.
