Written answers (Question to Employment)

The person concerned informed us that he was taking up full time employment and his disability allowance (DA) was stopped with effect from 24 July 2019.

On 9 September 2019 a request for information which is required in order to restart the DA for the person concerned was sent to him. On receipt of the requested information a decision will be made and he will be notified directly in writing.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
