Written answers (Question to Employment)

I confirm that the person concerned requested a review of the decision on their application for disability allowance (DA) and that this request was received by the Department on 6 December 2018. 

The matter has been referred to a Social Welfare Inspector (SWI) for a report on the person’s means and circumstances.  Once the SWI has completed their report, a decision will be made and this lady will be notified directly of the outcome.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
