Written Answers. - Disability Benefit.

481.

asked the Minister for Social Welfare the reason disability benefit has not yet been paid to a person (details supplied) in Dublin; and the level of benefit payable in this case on the basis of her insurance record.

The person concerned claimed disability benefit from 26 May 1980. She is not qualified for benefit, however, as she had less than the statutory minimum of 26 contributions paid or credited in 1978-79, the contribution year governing her claim. She was notified accordingly on 12 June 1980.
