The person concerned is currently in receipt of Illness Benefit at a weekly rate of €371.70. He is currently medically certified as unfit for work until the 3rd October 2019 and he has been paid fully up to date.

It is open for the person concerned to apply for the long term schemes of Invalidity Pension or Disability Allowance if he is permanently incapable of work, where his elegibity for these schemes can be  assessed.

I trust this clarifies the matter for you.
