Written answers (Question to Employment)

The person concerned has been awarded disability allowance (DA) with effect from 19 September 2018. The first payment was made by his chosen payment method on 2 October 2019.

Arrears of payment due less any necessary deductions in respect of overlapping payments, issued to the person concerned on 12 October 2019.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
