Written answers (Question to Employment)

The gentleman referred to has been awarded invalidity pension with effect from 9 May 2019. Payment will issue to his nominated post office on 25 July 2019. Any arrears due from 9 May 2019 to 24 July 2019 (less any overlapping social welfare payment) will issue as soon as possible. The gentleman in question was notified of this decision on 19 July 2019.

I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
