Re: Guide for unemployed people; What to do?
For every week that you work you get a 'paid' contribution. For every week you claim a Social Welfare payment you get a 'credited' contribution.
So, in your case based on the above, in 2007 your record will read: 32 Paid contributions, 20 Credited contributions= 52. So you have more than the required 39 paid or credited in the governing year.
