Written answers (Question to Employment)

The person concerned is currently in receipt of Illness Benefit at the maximum rate. All arrears due to her have issued.

She is currently paid up to date and medically certified as unfit for work until the 31st March 2019.

The Department has no record of receipt of an application for Disability Allowance from the person concerned.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
