The person concerned is currently a qualified adult on her partner's Jobseeker's Allowance claim. This means that her partner is in receipt of a payment in respect of her.

A claim for Illness Benefit by the person concerned has been received and the monetary difference between the qualified adult allowance and her illness benefit entitlement is currently being calculated and processed. Any arrears due to the person concerned will be paid to her within 10 working days.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
