Written answers (Question to Employment)

The person concerned requested a review of their state pension (non-contributory) entitlement.

As a result of this review, the person's weekly rate of payment increased with effect from 23 August 2019.  A consequential pension arrears payment issued to the person concerned on 13 September 2019.

I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
