Persons whose income falls below €960.00 in a rolling 8 week period can choose to remain on PTSE, or can close their PTSE claim and apply for Jobseeker's Allowance
as a self-employed person. Jobseeker’s Allowance is a means-tested payment. If their income increases at a later stage, the person can re-apply for PTSE. Payment will issue provided all the conditions for the scheme are met.
