Written answers (Question to Minister for Social Protection)

Invalidity pension is a payment for people who are permanently incapable of work because of illness or incapacity and who satisfy the contribution conditions. In order to determine a person's entitlement, an application form must be completed. To date, an application for invalidity pension has not been received from the person concerned. An application form has been issued to the person in question. On receipt of the duly completed application form, the person's entitlement will be examined, and the person concerned will be notified of the outcome.
