Invalidity pension (IP) is a payment for people who are permanently incapable of work because of illness or incapacity and for no other reason and who satisfy the pay related social insurance (PRSI) contribution conditions.
The department received a claim for IP for the lady concerned on 26 June 2020. The claim was refused on the grounds that the medical conditions for the scheme were not satisfied. She was notified on 5 October 2020 of this decision, the reasons for it and of her right of review and appeal.
I hope this clarifies the position for the Deputy.
