Written answers (Question to Employment)

Based on the evidence supplied in support of this person’s application, his 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 30 September 2019.

They requested a review of the decision by a deciding officer (DO) and submitted additional medical evidence for consideration on 22 November 2019. Once a decision is made on this additional evidence the person concerned will be notified directly of the outcome.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
