Written answers (Question to Social)

The person concerned has been awarded disability allowance with effect from 9 December 2020. The first payment will be made by her chosen payment method on 17 February 2021.

Arrears of payment due will issue as soon as possible once any necessary adjustment is calculated and applied in respect of any overlapping payments (if applicable).

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
