Written answers (Question to Employment)

The Department has received medical certificates from the person concerned, however, an application form for Illness Benefit (IB1) has not yet been received from him.

This form has been sent to the person concerned for completion and his claim will be processed as soon as it is received by the Department.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
