Written answers (Question to Employment)

Based on the evidence supplied in support of this person’s application, her application for disability allowance (DA) was disallowed on the grounds that the medical qualifying condition was not satisfied. The person in question was notified in writing of this decision on 08 August 2018.

They requested a review of the decision by a deciding officer (DO) and submitted additional medical evidence for consideration on 14 August 2018. This is being examined and when a decision is made she will be notified directly of the outcome.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
