Written answers (Question to Employment)

The lady referred to has been awarded invalidity pension with effect from 20 June 2019. Payment will issue to her nominated post office on 12 December 2019. Any arrears due from 20 June 2019 to 11 December 2019 will issue as soon as possible. The lady in question was notified of this decision on 06 December 2019.

I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
