Figures recently released by the Minister for Social Protection (Deputy Joan Burton) showed a reduction in numbers of Irish citizens refused a social welfare payment on the basis the Habitual Residence Condition.This may be due in part to the publication of updated ‘Operational Guidelines for Deciding Officers on the determination of Habitual Residence’ by the Department of Social Protection earlier this year. These can be found here and there is a section in point 7.2 that now deals specifically with returned Irish migrants.The statistics show that since 2009 a total of 2,107 Irish people were found not to satisfy the Habitual Residence Condition for the purposes of a social welfare payment. To date there were 264 refusals in 2012, down from 455 in 2011 and 650 in 2010.

 
Year Number of refusals
2009         738
