I confirm that the above named person was in receipt of disability allowance (DA) from my department. In October 2018, the claim was reviewed by a Social Welfare Inspector (SWI). Following on from meetings held with the SWI on 13 November 2018 and 15 January 2019, the person concerned was advised that his claim would be suspended due to refusing to supply the requested documentation.

On receipt of the requested information from the person concerned his DA claim will be referred back to the SWI for further assessment.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
