The application by the person named for the early retirement pension was received in my Department on 19 December 2003. Following examination of the application, my Department wrote to him on 7 January 2004 detailing a number of issues that needed to be resolved before his application could be considered further. These issues have now been resolved and the person named will be notified of the outcome when processing is complete.
