My Department received an application under the Early Retirement Scheme from the person named on 9 March, 2010. Under the Terms and Conditions of the Early Retirement Scheme, lands which are the subject of an Application for First Registration under Section 49, Land Registration Act, 1964, are not eligible for pension purposes unless registration is completed prior to making the application under the Scheme.

In the case of the person named, the lands subject to the application were not registered prior to the date of lodgement of the application. In accordance with the Scheme Terms and Conditions, the person named was informed in June 2010 that he was ineligible for payment. This decision was upheld on appeal and the person named was informed of this on 9 November 2010 and of his right of appeal to the Agriculture Appeals Office.
