Written answers (Question to Employment)

I can confirm that my department received an application for disability allowance (DA) from this gentleman on 28 November 2018.

On 29 January 2019 the person concerned was requested to supply supporting documentation required by the deciding officer in order to make a decision on his eligibility. On receipt of this information a decision will be made on his DA application and the person concerned will be notified of the outcome.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
