Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection
Invalidity Pension Applications
1259. To ask the Minister for Employment Affairs and Social Protection the status of an application by a person (details supplied) for an invalidity pension; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [36273/18]
The lady referred to has been awarded invalidity pension with effect from the 10 May 2018. Payment will issue to her nominated bank account on the 13 September 2018. Any arrears due from 10 May 2018 to 12 September 2018 (less any overlapping social welfare payment) will issue in due course. The lady in question was notified of this decision on the 30 August 2018.
I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
