Written answers (Question to Social)

I confirm that the department received an application for carer’s allowance from the person in question on the 2nd December 2011. This application was disallowed on medical grounds on the 2nd November 2012 and the person in question was notified accordingly. The person in question subsequently submitted further medical evidence for review on 20th December 2012. The medical evidence was forwarded to the Department’s medical assessors for further consideration. This medical evidence is awaiting medical assessment. Once the review is completed in this case the person concerned will be notified directly of the outcome.

Question No. 433 withdrawn.
