Written answers (Question to Employment)

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

The claim is medically certified up to the 9th December 2018 and paid up to the 8th December 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.
