Written answers (Question to Social)

An application for state pension non-contributory, a means-tested payment, was received from the person concerned on 1 November 2021.  Pension was awarded with effect from 5 November 2021.

As requested by the Deputy, a letter has issued to the person concerned on 10 June 2022, detailing the assessment of means and confirmation of the current weekly rate of State pension non-contributory.

I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
