Written answers (Question to Employment)

The lady referred to has been awarded invalidity pension with effect from the 15 February 2018. Payment will issue to her nominated bank account on the 15 March 2018. Any arrears due from 15 February 2018 to 14 March 2018 (less any overlapping social welfare payment) will issue in due course. The lady in question was notified of this decision on the 23 February 2018.

I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
