Written answers (Question to Social)

The person concerned has been awarded disability allowance with effect from 16 September 2015. The first payment was made by his selected payment method on 10 August 2016.

Arrears of payment due will issue as soon as possible once any necessary adjustment is calculated and applied in respect of any overlapping payments or in respect of outstanding overpayments (if applicable).

I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
