The person concerned has been awarded disability allowance (DA) with effect from 23 January 2019. The first payment will be made by her chosen payment method on 3 April 2019.

Arrears of payment due will issue as soon as possible once any necessary adjustment is calculated and applied in respect of any overlapping payments.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
