The person concerned submitted an application for disability allowance (DA) on 22 January 2019. Her application, based upon all the evidence submitted, was refused 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 4 April 2019 and was also notified of her 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 of her DA has been received.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
