Written answers (Question to Employment)

The person concerned submitted an application for disability allowance (DA) on 19 March 2019. Their application, based upon all the evidence submitted, was refused on medical grounds as it was not found that this lady was substantially restricted in taking up employment.

The person concerned was notified in writing of this decision on 28 June 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).

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
