Written answers (Question to Employment)

An application for Occupational Injury Benefit was received by the Department on the 26th September 2019.

This application has been awarded at a rate of €203 per week. The person concerned is currently medically certified as unfit for work until the 7th October 2019, and all arrears have been issued to him.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
