Written answers (Question to Social)

The person concerned has been awarded Guardian's Payment Contributory, for two children, at the rate of €186 per child, with effect from 29th May 2020. This was confirmed by letter dated 9th December 2020 to the person concerned.

The first payment issued for collection at the post office on 18th December 2020 and a cheque in respect of arrears issued last week.

I hope this clarifies the position for the Deputy.
