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

As of August 31, 2019 there were 499 recipients of both IP and the living alone allowance residing in the county of Limerick, including Limerick city.

I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
