If you are sentenced to community service under the Service Sentences Ordinances - you may be entitled to an income support benefit for the duration of the service, provided you meet the eligibility conditions.
In accordance with the period stipulated in the judgment.
To receive the benefit, you must file a claim for income support benefit with your local branch of the National Insurance, and attach all the required documents, including a certificate of community service issued by the Prison Service's Superintendent of Community Service.
You can submit the claim in the following ways:
An income support benefit is only paid from the month of claim submission. Therefore, it is important to submit the application in the month in which you started community service.
You will not be eligible for a benefit as community service worker if you apply after the end of the service period.
You may also be entitled to a benefit after the service period ends.
To check whether you are still entitled to the benefit, you should contact the National Insurance's branch nearest to your place of residence.
