Written answers (Question to Employment)

The person concerned has been awarded disability allowance with effect from 15 May 2019. The first payment will be made by her chosen payment method on 16 October 2019.

This lady was in receipt of another social welfare payment, or an increase was paid to another for her benefit, during the period 15 May 2019 to 15 October 2019. Consequently, the amount of social welfare already paid requires calculation. Arrears of payment due will issue as soon as possible once any necessary adjustment is applied.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
