Written answers (Question to Employment)

The person concerned was awarded a maximum rate widow's, widower's & surviving civil partner's contributory pension with effect from 30th August 2018. Payment will commence into her nominated account in a financial institution from the 22nd November 2019.

Any arrears of pension due from the 30th August 2018 will be lodged into her nominated account shortly.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
