Written answers (Question to Employment)

Based on the evidence supplied in support of this person’s application, their 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 2 February 2019.

They requested a review of the decision by a deciding officer (DO) and submitted additional medical evidence for consideration on 18 February 2019.

When a decision is made on the additional medical evidence they will be notified directly of the outcome.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
