Written answers (Question to Employment)

This lady submitted an application for disability allowance on 8 April 2019.

The application, based upon the evidence submitted, was refused on medical grounds and this lady was notified in writing of this decision on 31 July 2019. She was also notified the reason for it and of the option to submit further medical evidence in support of her application for review and of her right to appeal the decision to the Social Welfare Appeals Office (SWAO).

To date no request for an appeal or review has been received from this lady.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
