Written answers (Question to Employment)

Following a review of her application, the lady referred to has been awarded invalidity pension with effect from 14 March 2019.  Payment will issue to her nominated bank account on 17 October 2019.  Any arrears due from 14 March 2019 to 16 October 2019 (less any overlapping social welfare payment) will issue as soon as possible.  The lady in question was notified of this decision on 02 October 2019.

I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
