My Department has no record of receiving an appeal from the person concerned. 

Following a review, the person's claim for state pension (non-contributory) was awarded, with effect from 7 September 2018, on 31 October 2019.   The person concerned was notified of this decision in writing and their due arrears of pension were issued to the person concerned on 14 November 2019. 

I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
