The person concerned was issued with a supplementary welfare allowance, SWA, exceptional needs payment application form on 6 February 2018. As of yet, the completed application form, together with any supporting documentation that may be required, has not yet been received by the designated person.

Once a completed application form has been received it will processed as quickly as possible.

I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
