The person concerned has been awarded disability allowance with effect from 15 May 2019. The first payment was made by her chosen payment method on 17 October 2019.

Arrears of payment due were calculated to take account of any overlapping payments and have issued to the person concerned on 24 October 2019. A breakdown of this figure has also issued to this lady.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
