Written answers (Question to Employment)

I confirm that a request for a review of his disability allowance (DA) was received from this gentleman by the Department on 8 March 2019. The application was referred to a social welfare inspector (SWI) for a report on the person’s means and circumstances.

A review of this gentleman's DA was carried out on 7 June 2019 and he was notified of the outcome directly in writing. Arrears of allowance due also issued to the person concerned on 7 June 2019.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
