Invalidity pension (IP) is a payment for people who are permanently incapable of work because of illness or incapacity and who satisfy the pay related social insurance (PRSI) contribution conditions.
The department received a claim for IP from this gentleman on 03 August 2018. His claim was disallowed on the grounds that the medical conditions for the scheme were not satisfied. He was notified on 04 October 2018 of this decision, the reasons for it and of his right of review and appeal.
He requested a review of the decision and submitted further medical evidence in support of his request.
This review will be processed as quickly as possible and when a decision is made he will be notified directly of the outcome.
I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
