The gentleman referred to has been awarded invalidity pension with effect from 31 January 2019.  Payment will issue to his nominated post office on 14 March 2019.  Any arrears due from 31 January 2019 to 14 March 2019 will issue as soon as possible.  The gentleman in question was notified of this decision on 27 February 2019.

I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
