The person concerned had been awarded an Invalidity Pension with effect from 15 October 2020 under EU regulations, using a combination of his EU and Irish contributions.

His weekly payment was calculated as €139.80 and he received his first weekly payment on 25 March 2021.  The person concerned was in receipt of Supplementary Welfare Allowance from 22 October 2020 to 17 March 2021.  Therefore no arrears are due for this period.  

My Department received notification that the person concerned passed away on the 8 May 2021.

A cheque issued to his spouse on the 20 May consisting of 6 weeks of After Death Benefit.  I can confirm no other payments are due.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
