Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection
Illness Benefit Applications
1146. 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. [45854/18]
No application for Illness Benefit (IB) has been received from the person concerned.
If he is ill and unfit for work, he should submit an application for IB to the Department and it will be processed as quickly as possible.
I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
