    I am an Irish citizen who is eligible for the full dole if unemployed , if I move to portugal and can't find work immediately , can I claim dole there?

    I suspect when you roll into the Algarve dole office in your shorts and flip flops,you might have a job convincing them that you are actively seeking work.

    You can transfer a Jobseekers Benefit payment from Ireland to another EU country for a short period of time. You have to be signing here for at least 4 weeks before you can transfer the claim.

    Does that also apply to other things like disability allowances?
