Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection
Illness Benefit Applications
1029. To ask the Minister for Employment Affairs and Social Protection when a decision will issue for an application by a person (details supplied); the reason for the delay in same; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [44817/18]
The Illness Benefit claim for the person concerned is now paid up to date. She is certified to 20th November 2018.
If she remains ill and unfit for work, medical certificates should be submitted to the Department as soon as possible to avoid any delays to future payments.
I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
