Written answers (Question to Employment)

The lady referred to has been awarded invalidity pension with effect from 06 December 2018. Payment will issue to her nominated bank account on 21 February 2019. Arrears due from 06 December 2018 to 20 February 2019 (less any overlapping social welfare payment) will issue as soon as possible. The lady in question was notified of this decision on 04 February 2019.

I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
