Written answers (Question to Employment)

The Illness Benefit claim for the person concerned is both medically certified and paid up to the 11th December 2018.

Payment for the claim has been nominated by the person concerned to his employer.

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.
