Written answers (Question to Employment)

Following an appeal, the second named person has been awarded disability allowance (DA) with effect from 18 July 2018. An increase for qualified adult (IQA) has been awarded in respect of the first named person. The first payment will be made by his chosen payment method on 17 April 2019.

Arrears of payment due will issue as soon as possible once any necessary adjustment is calculated and applied in respect of any overlapping payments.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
