Written answers (Question to Employment)

The entitlement to guardian's payment contributory for the person concerned has been reviewed. The deciding officer has decided that payments be  reinstated with effect from 1 February 2019. Weekly payment for the person concerned will be lodged to his nominated account in a financial institution, together with due  arrears.  The person concerned has been notified of this decision on 29 April 2019.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
