Written answers (Question to Employment)

Based on the evidence supplied in support of this person’s application, her application for disability allowance (DA) was disallowed on the grounds that the medical qualifying condition was not satisfied. The person in question was notified in writing of this decision on 4 July 2019.

They requested a review of the decision by a deciding officer (DO) and submitted additional medical evidence for consideration on 26 July 2019 and on 13 August 2019.

When a decision is made on this additional information the person concerned will be notified directly of the outcome.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
