Written answers (Question to Employment)

The person concerned has been awarded an increase for a qualified adult (IQA) on their disability allowance (DA) with effect from 3 April 2019. The first payment will be made by his chosen payment method on 9 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.
