Written answers (Question to Employment)

An application for invalidity pension (IP) was received from the gentleman concerned on 01 March 2019. This gentleman has been awarded IP with effect from 07 March 2019.  He has an entitlement to state pension contributory (SPC) with effect from 09 March 2019. Payment of IP arrears due from 07 March 2019 to 08 March 2019 (less any overlapping social welfare payment) will issue to his nominated post office as soon as possible.  The gentleman in question was notified of this decision on 01 May 2019.

I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
