475. To ask the Minister for Employment Affairs and Social Protection the reason for the delays issuing a decision on the review of an invalidity pension application by a person (details supplied) which commenced over two months ago; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [40911/19]
Following a review of her application, the lady referred to has been awarded invalidity pension with effect from 24 January 2019. Payment will issue to her nominated bank account on 24 October 2019 Any arrears due from 24 January 2019 to 23 October 2019 (less any overlapping social welfare payment) will issue as soon as possible.

I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
