Ceist:

215. Deputy Brendan Howlin asked the Minister for Employment Affairs and Social Protection the reason a payment for an application for an illness benefit by a person (details supplied) was not made; when a payment regarding the claim will be made; and if she will make a statement on the matter.

The Illness Benefit claim from the person concerned is currently paid and medically certified as unfit for work up to the 1st March 2019.

If the person concerned remains ill and unfit for work, a further medical certificate should be submitted to the Department as soon as possible in order for further payments to issue.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
