Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection
Illness Benefit Applications
The Illness Benefit claim from the person concerned has been awarded and is currently paid up to date.
I am advised that there was a delay in the person concerned receiving payment as the account details provided to the Department were incorrect.
The department received the correct bank account details on the 27th September 2019, and the person's claim was subsequently updated and all arrears issued from the Department on that date.
I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
