Written answers (Question to Employment)

The social insurance record of the person concerned has been updated following the payment of their self-employment liabilities for 2016.

A revised decision has been made awarding a maximum rate of state pension (contributory), with effect from 11 September 2017, the person’s 66th birthday.

The person concerned has been notified of this decision in writing on 30 January 2018 and due arrears have issued.

I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
