A Mayo TD has called on Minister for Social Protection Regina Doherty to ensure that local offices have the flexibility to pay people their illness benefits, while an ongoing IT glitch is being fixed.

Fianna Fail TD Dara Calleary says the discrepancies in the payments, which have seen people who are eligible for illness benefit not being paid in some cases, has caused huge distress.

He says while the IT problem is being sorted out, local offices should have the power to make the payments to those who are eligible.
