I confirm my Department received an application for disability allowance (DA) on 24 May 2016. In order to determine the circumstances of this lady, her file was forwarded to her local Social Welfare Inspector (SWI). The SWI will arrange to meet with the person in question as soon as possible.

A decision on her entitlement to DA will be made on receipt of the Social Welfare Inspector’s report. The person concerned will be notified directly of the outcome.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.

Question No. 338 answered with Question No. 313.
