The gentleman referred to has been awarded invalidity pension with effect from 09 May 2019.  Payment will issue to his nominated bank account on 19 September 2019.  Any arrears due from 09 May 2019 to 18 September 2019 (less any overlapping social welfare payment) will issue as soon as possible.  The gentleman in question was notified of this decision on 09 September 2019.

I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
