Written answers (Question to Social)

According to the records of my Department, an application for an Exceptional Needs Payment (ENP) has not recently been submitted by the person concerned.

To facilitate the person concerned, my officials issued an ENP pack by post on 16/02/2021. Upon receipt of the completed application form and supporting documentation, the claim will be assessed and a decision will issue to the person concerned

I trust this clarifies the matter.
