An application for invalidity pension (IP) was received from the lady concerned on 17 September 2019. This lady has been awarded IP with effect from 31 January 2019 to 06 February 2019. Payment of arrears due from 31 January 2019 to 06 February 2019 (less any overlapping social welfare payment) will issue to her nominated bank account as soon as possible. The lady in question was notified of this decision on 21 November 2019. This lady may have an entitlement to state pension contributory from 07 February 2019.
I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
