Following a review of the entitlement of this gentleman, it was found that he had a decrease in his means from his previous assessment. Based on the information provided to my department, a maximum rate of disability allowance (DA) was awarded with effect from 12 June 2019.

A letter issued to this gentleman informing him of this on 24 September 2019. Arrears of payment due have issued to the person concerned.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
