The Illness Benefit claim for the person concerned has been examined and payment has now been awarded from 25 February 2019, which is the first date she was medically certified as unfit for work.

Payment due from 25 February 2019 to 13 June 2019 has issued and accordingly the person has now been paid the full amount due from 25 February 2019 to date.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
