The discontinuation of adult education allowance has been recorded in the Government Programme as of 1 August 2024. Changes related to support require legislative amendments, so for the time being, the granting and payment of support will continue normally. We currently receive a considerable number of applications, messages and calls, so processing of adult education allowance applications and customer service can temporarily become backlogged. We will do our best to clear the backlog. You can find further information on the News concerning the adult education allowance page.
