The Department received an application for Illness Benefit from the person concerned on the 1st April 2019.
However, the person concerned is currently a qualified adult on her partner's Jobseeker's Allowance claim. This means that her partner is in receipt of a qualified adult allowance in respect of her.
The monetary difference between this allowance and her Illness Benefit entitlement is currently being calculated. Once completed, her Illness Benefit claim will be awarded and payment will issue to her.
I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
