Written answers (Question to Employment)

Following a successful appeal, this lady has been awarded disability allowance (DA) with effect from 19 December 2018. The first payment will be made by her chosen payment method on 3 July 2019.

Arrears of payment due, will issue as soon as possible once any necessary adjustment is calculated and applied in respect of any overlapping payments.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
