Written answers (Question to Employment)

The Illness Benefit claim for the person concerned has been processed and any arrears due have been issued.

The claim is paid up to the 26th November 2018 and medically certified up to the 29th November 2018.

If the person concerned remains ill and unfit for work after that date,  further medical certificate should be submitted to the Department in order for further payments to issue.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
