Following the submission of further medical evidence by the person concerned, their case has been reviewed and they have been awarded disability allowance with effect from 28 November 2018.  The first payment was made by his chosen payment method on 20 March 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.
