Written answers (Question to Employment)

The gentleman referred to has been awarded invalidity pension with effect from 21 February 2019.  Payment will issue to his nominated post office on 06 June 2019.  Any arrears due from 21 February 2019 to 05 June 2019 (less any overlapping social welfare payment) will issue as soon as possible.  The gentleman in question was notified of this decision on 20 May 2019.

I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
