Written answers (Question to Employment)

The person concerned has been awarded disability allowance with effect from 8 May 2019. The first payment will be made by her chosen payment method on 16 October 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 (if applicable).

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
