The gentleman referred to has been awarded invalidity pension with effect from 5 April 2018. Payment will issue to his nominated bank account on 3 October 2019. He was notified of this decision on 19 September 2019.
The gentleman has applied for an increase for a qualified children on his claim and a request for information in relation to this increase was sent to him on 19 September 2019. On receipt of the requested information any arrears due from 5 April 2018 to 2 October 2019 (less any overlapping social welfare payment) will issue as soon as possible.
I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
