Social Welfare Eligibility
1133. To ask the Minister for Employment Affairs and Social Protection the status of an application for an invalidity pension by a person (details supplied); and when they can expect a decision on their case. [40057/21]
An application for Invalidity Pension (INVP) was received from the person concerned on 28 May 2021. She was awarded INVP with effect from 3 June 2021. The first payment will issue to her nominated bank account on the 5 August 2021.
Any arrears due (less any overlapping social welfare payment) will issue in due course. The person in question was notified of this decision on the 22 July 2021.
I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
