Qualifying people and their dependent spouses who have full PRSI cover may obtain a grant towards the cost of a hearing aid. This would include full contributory pensioners, invalidity pensioners, those on disability benefit and their dependent spouses. (Conditions apply.) The scheme is also open to the self-employed who meet the proper contribution threshold.
