Written answers (Question to Employment)

This gentleman applied for disability allowance (DA) on 20 May 2019. The application was disallowed as the person concerned failed to supply information which was requested by this Department.

On 19 September 2019 additional information was submitted on behalf of the person concerned. Further supporting documentation which is required in order to make a decision on his entitlement was subsequently requested by the deciding officer on 20 September 2019.

On receipt of this information a decision will be made and the person concerned will be notified of the outcome. 

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
