Written answers (Question to Employment)

An application for state pension non-contributory was received from the person concerned on 7 November 2019. A request for further information in relation to this pension claim was issued to the person concerned on 19 November 2019.

On receipt of the requested information, the person's eligibility for pension will be examined and the person concerned will be notified of the outcome in writing.

I hope that this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
