Written answers (Question to Employment)

I can confirm that my department received an application for disability allowance (DA) from this lady on 5 June 2019. 

On 7 September 2019 and on 20 September 2019 the person concerned was requested to supply supporting documentation required by the deciding officer in order to make a decision on her eligibility.  On receipt of this information a decision will be made on her DA application and the person concerned will be notified of the outcome.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
