Written answers (Question to Employment)

Following a review of the entitlement of the person in question, disability allowance (DA) was disallowed with effect from 17 July 2019 as she was deemed to have means in excess of the statutory limit for her circumstances.

The person concerned was notified in writing of this decision on 31 July 2019 and was also notified of their right to request a review of this decision or to appeal it to the independent Social Welfare Appeals Office (SWAO). No request for an appeal or review has been received.  

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
