Written answers (Question to Employment)

This gentleman has been awarded disability allowance (DA) with effect from 16 January 2019. The first payment was made by his chosen payment method on 24 April 2019.

Arrears of payment due, were calculated to take account of overlapping payments, and have issued to the person concerned on 27 June 2019.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
