Following a review of this lady's entitlement to disability allowance (DA), she has been awarded the maximum rate of payment from 8th August 2018. She was notified of this decision on 11 September 2019. She was also notified on that date of her right to seek a review of this decision

or appeal directly to the Social Welfare Appeals Office.

The first payment at the revised rate will issue to the person concerned on 18 September 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.
