The lady referred to has been awarded invalidity pension with effect from 29 November 2018. Payment will issue to her nominated bank account on 04 April 2019. Any arrears due from 29 November 2018 to 03 April 2019 (less any overlapping social welfare payment) will issue as soon as possible. The lady in question was notified of this decision on 15 March 2019.

I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
