Written answers (Question to Employment)

The person concerned submitted an application for disability allowance (DA) on 14 December 2018. Their application, based upon all the evidence submitted, was disallowed on medical grounds as it was found that they were not substantially restricted in taking up employment.

The person concerned was notified in writing of this decision on 25 February 2019 and was also notified of their right to request a review of this decision or to appeal it to the independent Social Welfare Appeals Office (SWAO). No request for an appeal or review has been received.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the deputy.
