Partial Capacity Benefit allows a person who has been in receipt of Illness Benefit for six months or Invalidity Pension and who may not have full capacity for work, to return to employment and continue to receive a partial or full payment from the Department.
The personal rate of Partial Capacity Benefit payment is based on the assessment of a person's restriction on capacity for work i.e. moderate, severe or profound, where either 50%, 75%, or 100% of a person's payment is maintained.
The Partial Capacity Benefit claim from the person concerned has been processed and she has been assessed as having a moderate restriction on her capacity for work. A letter issued to her on the 2nd July 2019 giving full details of this decision.
I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
