An application for domiciliary care allowance was received on 3rd October 2011. This application was referred to one of the Department’s Medical Assessors who found that the child was not medically eligible for the allowance. A letter issued on 30th November 2011 advising the customer of the decision.
The person concerned subsequently lodged an appeal against this decision and advised that additional information will follow. As part of the appeals process, this information, when received, together with the original application will be forwarded to a Medical Assessor for review.
