Written answers (Question to Employment)

The lady referred to has been awarded invalidity pension with effect from 14 November 2019.  Payment will issue to her nominated bank account on 09 January 2020.  Any arrears due from 14 November to 08 January 2020 (less any overlapping social welfare payment) will issue as soon as possible.  The lady in question was notified of this decision on 13 December 2019.

I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
