On receipt of additional medical evidence submitted in support of the review of the claim, the deciding officer has decided that the medical conditions for the scheme are satisfied and the lady in question has been awarded invalidity pension with effect from 07 March 2019.  Payment will issue to her nominated bank account on 03 October 2019.  Any arrears due from 07 March 2019 to 02 October 2019 (less any overlapping social welfare payment) will issue as soon as possible.  She was notified of this decision on 16 September 2019.

I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
