The gentleman referred to has been awarded invalidity pension with effect from 29 November 2018. Payment will issue to his nominated bank account on 07 February 2019. Any arrears due from 29 November 2018 to 06 February 2019 will issue as soon as possible. The gentleman in question was notified of this decision on 29 January 2019.

I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
