The number of people getting the Pandemic Unemployment Payment has fallen by 29,000.
Almost 334,000 people received the PUP today.
Over the past seven days, almost 26,000 people closed their PUP account to return to work.
18,000 of these people have got their final payment today, and won't be included in next week's figures.
Over the past fortnight, the number of people in receipt of the Pandemic Unemployment Payment has fallen by about 50,000.
Social Protection Minister Heather Humphreys says "“The figures that I am publishing today include the largest number of people to close their claim in a single week since the year began. “We are also seeing reductions in the number of people receiving the PUP in every county and across all occupations."
