The person concerned has been awarded an invalidity pension (IP) under EU regulations with effect from 29 April 2021. Invalidity pension is paid by electronic fund transfer to persons who reside outside the State and it is paid every four weeks; one week in advance and three weeks in arrears. The person concerned will receive her first IP payment to her nominated bank account on 21 October 2021 and will shortly thereafter receive arrears due covering the period from 29 April 2021 to 06 October 2021. Notification of the decision issued to her on 06 October 2021.

I hope this clarifies the position for the Deputy.
