The Illness Benefit claim from the person concerned has been awarded at the maximum rate of €198 per week.

A payment of €231.00 has now issued to her nominated Post Office that pays her for the full period of her claim from the 9th October 2018 to the 16th October 2018, no payment is due for the first six days of her claim.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
