Written answers (Question to Employment)

The gentleman referred to has been awarded invalidity pension with effect from 11 July 2019. Payment will issue to his nominated bank account on 28 November 2019. Any arrears due from 11 July 2019 to 27 November 2019 (less any overlapping social welfare payment) will issue as soon as possible. The gentleman in question was notified of this decision on 21 November 2019.

I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
