Are you an employee making PRSI contributions? If so the Department of Social Protection, Dental Treatment Benefit Scheme applies to you.
Employees and their spouses who make PRSI contributions are entitled to one free dental check-up in a calendar year.
In order to qualify certain PRSI conditions must be met:
- Those under 21, you must have paid a minimum of 39 weeks PRSI since starting work.
- Those aged between 21 and 24, you must have paid a minimum of 39 weeks PRSI since starting work and 39 weeks paid or credited PRSI in the tax year on which your claim is based. (This can be the same 39 weeks.)
- Those aged between 25 and 65, you must have paid 260 weeks PRSI since starting work and 39 weeks paid or credited PRSI in the tax year on which the claim is based. (This 39 weeks can be within the 260 weeks, it is not on top of the 260 weeks.)
So take advantage of the PRSI claims you have made, you have worked hard for them!
