The lady referred to has been awarded invalidity pension with effect from 29 March 2018. Payment will issue to her nominated bank account on 7 February 2019. Any arrears due from 29 March 2018 to 6 February 2019 (less any overlapping social welfare payment) will issue as soon as possible. The lady in question was notified of this decision on 24 January 2019.

I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
