I've lost my job, was on three day a week and was getting €94 on social welfare. How much will I get now? Will be claiming off my stamps. Im single no dependants.

The full rate is €188 - and as your using your contributions, you should get this rate. As you've been already using your contributions (your stamps) I don't think they'll last you as long as someone who hasn't been on a three day week. After your stamps run out you can then apply for Jobseekers Allowance which is means tested.
