Review & Changes to the Back to Work Enterprise Allowance

There have been changes to the qualification period for the Back to Work Enterprise Allowance (BTWEA). The Department of Social Protection have reduced the qualification period from 12 months to just 9 months for more people on welfare, not just for Jobseekers, but also reduced those on other schemes like One-Parent Family Payment, Jobseekers Transitional Payment, Disability Allowance, and Farm Assist, and other welfare payments.
