Written answers (Question to Employment)

The Illness Benefit claim for the person concerned is both certified and paid up to 14th 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 to him.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
