Written answers (Question to Employment)

The Illness Benefit claim for the person concerned is medically certified and paid up to the 15th November 2018.

This customers next medical certificate was due on the 16th November 2018.

If the person concerned remains ill and unfit for work, a further medical certificate should be submitted to the Department as soon as possible in order for further payments to issue.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
