The lady referred to has been awarded invalidity pension with effect from 28 March 2019. She has an entitlement to state pension contributory (SPC) with effect from 20 April 2019. Payment of IP arrears due from 28 March 2019 to 19 April 2019 (less any overlapping social welfare payment) will issue to her nominated bank account as soon as possible. The lady in question was notified of this decision on 10 June 2019.

I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.

Invalidity pension (IP) is a payment for people who are permanently incapable of work because of illness or incapacity and who satisfy the pay related social insurance (PRSI) contribution conditions.

The Department received a claim for IP for the gentleman concerned on 23 May 2019. The claim will be processed as quickly as possible and he will be notified directly of the outcome.

I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
