Unemployed Poles in Ireland : a crash course in milking the system

If both parents and child are not domiciled in the country, child benefit is not payable in Ireland but the EU country where you are residing.

"Residence of the Child

The child must be ordinarily resident in the State. This requirement is deemed to be satisfied in cases of:

members of the Irish Defence Forces or the Irish Civil Service serving abroad,
volunteer development workers, or
persons temporarily employed abroad by an Irish employer and paying Irish social insurance contributions."

"If you are an EU/EEA citizen or a Swiss national and work in a country covered by EU Regulations, the country you work in usually pays Child Benefit even if your family is living in another country."

There's very strict rules with regards paying out Child Welfare. It's gotten even stricter of late into the bargain.


If a Pole comes to Ireland, has a child back home in Poland, the Pole is paid full Irish rates of child benefit. It matters not a jot if the child has never set foot on Irish soil. Twenty million, per annum, I do believe.

"If you are an EU/EEA citizen or a Swiss national and work in a country covered by EU Regulations, the country you work in usually pays Child Benefit even if your family is living in another country."


Which backs up my previous point.

Out of interest, why were you looking up this legislation? Were you hoping to still receive child benefit from the exchequer, even when you and are kin will be no longer resident in the Irish state?

If so, lol.

As far as I know recently for a child benefit to be received a local GP has to sign the papers confirming that he is taking regular care of that particular child. That would mean that he has to see them on a regular basis, am I right?


However logical it sounds it seems to be against EU regulations and someone will challenge this procedure sooner or later.

Nope. A bert cert suffices.

Look after your own childers.

Repatriate aliens without a blood connection to the nation.

Revoke citizenship awarded to aliens.

Smart. Then every irish person would offer marriage for cash.

Nope revoke, because I am moving within my company from Dublin to Warsaw, I will be employed under my Irish contract until year end, paying tax in Ireland. This has an impact on where benefit will be paid and can lead to delays, hence my research.

As for benefit being paid based on where the primary earner works, I for one don't have a problem with that as they are contributing to state coffers and paying rent, buying food locally, thus contributing go the economy as a whole.

I take greater issue with the local scumbags for whom benefit has become a way of life, or single mothers who take advantage of the system to pay little or no rent for them and a boyfriend who officially doesn't exist. Immigration may be something that needs to be looked at but it's far down the chain. Abuse of social welfare by locals is far more of a drain on the economy as is a bloated, inefficient civil service and the fact banking executives who helped cause the crisis are still free and sitting on assets moved offshore. Never mind the xenophobic fear of being exploited about foreigners, it's local issues which have cost us dearly as a country. Hell, it may be unlawful-pc but I'm willing to wager socialnwelfare abuse by Irish Travellers is a greater problem..

Hmm you do know there's millions of Irish and English who have emigrated to work elsewhere over past 100 years? Who also have 'taken' jobs off locals and who avail of social welfare in those countries? And define indigenous

Interesting, have you checked that one with the Polish tax office? They may have something to say about that (assuming that your place of residence will be in Poland).

Anti-fraud checks
EU/EEA citizens and Swiss national covered by EU Regulations are required to certify every 4 months that they continue to work in this State.

Unsure what form of certification this is, but does curtail abuse by people who have emigrated.

As for residency, it is over ruled by workplace to a certain extent ie a father works in Ireland with a wife and child in Poland. Poland must pay the benefit as per their own internal scales however the Irish state is eligible for 'topping up' the benefit to bring it in line with Irish rates.

Again as the father in this case is contributing to state coffers, don't see a problem with this one.


@ Harry I believe i will be eligible for tax in both, Ireland 'real time ' and then having to submit annual return to Polish tax authorities in 2013 for 2012. Pretty certain I'll get screwed by either side but such is life everywhere with tax

Great news. One less culchie living in my city. Hopefully your polish mot is leaving too?

My friends' experiences say the opposite.


80% of child benifit to children not living here goes to Poland
This cost soared to €20.9 million in 2008, up from €720,000 in 2005, due to high levels of immigration from central and eastern Europe from 2004 onwards.

No figures were released giving a detailed breakdown of where the 7,814 children live. But previous estimates from the department suggested up to 80 per cent of parents getting child benefit for non-resident children were Poles




Hell, it may be unlawful-pc but I'm willing to wager socialnwelfare abuse by Irish Travellers is a greater problem..


There are 24,000 gypos in Ireland. There are circa 45000 eastern europeans in receipt of social welfare. Do the math.



THE Polish finance minister has expressed concern to Michael Noonan about Government plans to cut child benefit payments to Polish parents living here, but whose children are living in their home country.


The parents' home country usually pays the standard rate of child benefit, which in Poland is €11 per month. The Irish exchequer must then top this up to the full Irish rate -- €140 per month for a first and second child.

You don't seem to be listening.

Nowadays to apply for a child benefit you are often asked to furnish the GP letter.
When applying for PPS number - you are often asked to provide a letter from employer confirming that you are working.
These are only two procedures (apparently aimed at cutting the social benefits people apply for) that I stumbled upon just recently, there may be more I am not aware of.

And although these internal measures sound reasonable and I could easily support them - they cannot be legally implemented. The cost of accessing EU 40 years ago.


€20.9 million in 2008

20 million? That's peanuts.
The new fancy court building in Dublin cost 7 times that.

Who the hell are these gypos, as you call them? Aren't they Irish people like yourself? I grew up in a part of London where there was a camp down the road with what in those days were called tinkers or pikies, and a lot of them were Irish. We rubbed along alright most of the time, except for the odd time when there was a break-in and they were, of course, blamed (a story a thousand years old).

Ive no issue with the knackers. And yes. they are ethnic Irish.

Often asked? And say these "GP" practices in some village on the Polish border. Do the social send a team to investigate or do they take the "GP"s signature as gospel?

Wrong.

You cant work legally without a PPS number. NO reputable business would employ someone without a PPS number.

Everyone, legally resident in the state, is entitled to a PPS number. Even people whom cannot legally work, i.e asylum seekers.

Ive recently been forced to undergo a course in employment law. So I suggest you stop spoofing.

And although these internal measures sound reasonable and I could easily support them - they cannot be legally implemented. The cost of accessing EU 40 years ago.


Show me EU legislation that pertains your view, i.e that member states must pay child benefit to non resident children.

Ta.

If you do, I will donate a crisp one hundred euro bill to a charity of your choice. With evidence posted on here.

But you wont be able to, as it doesnt exist.

Stop spoofing.

20 million? That's peanuts.


It could build a hospital. A few schools. Employ 400 nurses for a year.

The new fancy court building in Dublin cost 7 times that.


Great stuff. Nice building too.

"Local" as my previous post said. Local - as Irish. However having in mind how ridiculously understaffed Irish practices are there is a good chance the GP himself will be from India, Poland or France.

You cant work legally without a PPS number. NO reputable business would employ someone without a PPS number.

They would, they did and they will. The only ones hit really hard by the lack of PPS no. are the employees - the resulting emergency tax can be quite painful to the pocket.

True. That's why asking for a letter from employer can and will never get official.

Gosh, I start to doubt if you really live in Ireland. The complete detachment from the reality...

Was talking to my 'mot' last night about it. She did indeed need a letter signed by the GP for the purposes of child benefit (PPS number right of child, confirmation he has seen it and that the child is taking part in vaccination program)

And yeah am a culchie, see no shame in being from the countryside or indeed looking abroad for opportunities. Keeping on open mind isn't the evil you seem to think it.

See how I guessed that just from your posts.

Culchies are as alien to Dublin as the slavs. They also tend to support mass immigration, as they cannot find friends or forge meaningful relationships with the natives, in Du .

I am a Dub first and foremost.

Culchies in Dublin are just as much a threat to the native working class as the slav scab workers.

When are you leaving btw?

Make sure to visit Hill 16 and tell the natives that they are inferior to the foreigners.

:D you think anyone not from Dublin is a farmer's child. Hmm might need to broaden those horizon's a bit.

Might surprise you to know I work in the IFSC. It's full of 'scab' workers and culchiesas you so quaintly put it and yet surprisingly the IFSC is doing quite well - indeed it's a major employer.

Imagine that, a multinational corporation functioning without the guiding hand of Dubliners and/or xenophobes. Quite remarkable.

Anyway, maybe a browse through the information provided below will help open the blinkers a little bit. I don't hold out much hope of it given your attitude to date but hey, you can only head a horse to water as they say...

The below highlights exactly why migrants are required in Ireland:

in 2006, the ESRI predicted that Ireland would need 100,000 migrants per annum until 2020 ffs!

They also helped fuel the property bubble.
