Written answers (Question to Employment)

I confirm that my Department received an application for disability allowance from the person concerned on 25 September 2018. On completion of the necessary investigations on all aspects of the claim a decision will be made and they will be notified directly of the outcome.

The processing time for individual disability allowance claims may vary in accordance with their relative complexity in terms of the three main qualifying criteria, the person’s circumstances and the information they provide in support of their claim.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
