    If someone is made redundant and qualifies for Job Seekers benefit and have an dependant adult (with no income) are they entitled to an increase in respect of the qualified adult. Is their means (money in bank) used to reduce the amount that will be received.

    The money of the dependent in the bank will be means tested but the first €20.000 is disregarded and anything over that will reduce the payment
