Disability allowance (DA) is subject to periodic reviews. This gentleman's entitlement was recently reviewed and it was established that he no longer satisfies the habitual residence condition for receipt of DA. The person concerned was notified of this on 9 April 2019.

A request for a review was received and a review of this decision was carried out. The original decision was upheld and the person concerned was notified in writing on 24 May 2019. He was also advised of his right to appeal this decision to the independent social welfare appeals office. No request for an appeal has been received.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
