The Person concerned is due to receive her payments each Monday, however if there is a delay in the Department receiving her medical certificate it can result in late payments due to late processing.

A payment of €203 was processed November 15th and another payment of €203 was processed November 18th. Payment by EFT may take two to three days to appear in accounts.

The Person concerned is medically certified as unfit for work until 2nd December 2019 and all monies due have now issued to her. If she is sick after that date she need to get further medical certification.

I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy
