Written answers (Question to Social)

The application was initially disallowed on medical grounds and the decision of the Appeals officer in this case related solely to that aspect of the claim. In order to determine the person’s weekly means her application was forwarded to a social welfare inspector. I understand the inspector requested further information from the person in relation to her means.

A final decision on entitlement to disability allowance will be given on receipt of the social welfare inspector’s report and the person concerned will be notified directly of the outcome.
