Written answers (Question to Employment)

The review of the Invalidity Pension (IP) claim for the gentleman referred to has been finalised, following receipt of additional medical evidence, and he has been awarded IP with effect from the 18 January 2018.

Payment will issue to his nominated bank account on the 27 September 2018. Any arrears due from 18 January 2018 to 26 September 2018 (less any overlapping social welfare payment) will issue in due course.

The gentleman in question was notified of this decision on the 07 September 2018.

I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
