Written answers (Question to Employment)

This lady has been awarded disability allowance with effect from 5 December 2018.

A letter issued to this lady on 3 May 2019, informing her arrears of payment due for the period 5 December 2018 to 26 March 2019, would be paid by her chosen payment method on 8 May 2019.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
