Written answers (Question to Employment)

The person concerned has been awarded disability allowance with effect from 28 November 2018. The first payment was made by his chosen payment method on 6 March 2019.

Arrears of payment due have been calculated taking account of overlapping payments and have issued to the person concerned on 19 March 2019.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
