Terry Hyland, the main administrator of BWEA Applications from Breffni Integrated will be in Ballyconnell tomorrow Tuesday 16th April at the Church Street centre to give 1-2-1 advice and general information on the Back to Work Enterprise Allowance Scheme from 3pm.
If you are unemployed, living in West Cavan and want to find out more about starting your own business without losing your benefits, please come along to find out more. Contact Sandy or Geraldine on 071 9853321 for more information.
The Back to Work Enterprise Allowance (BTWEA) scheme encourages people getting certain social welfare payments to become self-employed. If you take part in the Back to Work Enterprise Allowance scheme (pdf) you can keep a percentage of your social welfare payment for up to 2 years.
A new Back to Work Scheme called the Short-Term Enterprise Allowance started in May 2009. There is no qualifying period for the Short-Term Enterprise Allowance. You can get immediate access to the allowance if you meet the qualifying conditions.
The website selfemployedsupports.ie has information on the services and entitlements available if you are self-employed and your income is reduced.
