Written answers (Question to Employment)

The Illness Benefit claim from the person concerned has been awarded at a rate of €203 from the 30th March 2020.  A payment of €1015.00 has issued to her paying her from the start of her claim up to the 10th May 2020, the date on her most recent medical certificate.

If the person concerned remains ill and unfit for work, a further medical certificate should be submitted to the Department as soon as possible in order for further payments to issue. 

An award letter issued to the person concerned on the 25th May 2020 giving her the full details of this decision.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
