Invalidity pension (IP) is a payment for people who are permanently incapable of work because of illness or incapacity and who satisfy the pay related social insurance (PRSI) contribution conditions.

The Department received a claim for IP for the lady concerned on the 14 June 2019. On 16 July 2019, two medical forms issued to her for completion and a Deciding Officer of the department wrote to her requesting further information relevant to her claim. The claim will be finalised as quickly as possible on receipt of the requested information.

I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
