Written answers (Question to Employment)

The lady referred to has been awarded invalidity pension with effect from the 19 October 2017. Payment will issue to her nominated post office on the 15 February 2018. Any arrears due from 19 October 2017 to 14 February 2018 (less any overlapping social welfare payment) will issue in due course. The lady in question was notified of this decision on the 29 January 2018.

I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
