Disability Allowance Eligibility
There is no specific legislative provision for disability allowance to be paid to persons living outside the State.
There have been some instances where, in exceptional circumstances, disability allowance has been paid to persons for periods where they were undergoing medical treatment outside the State. In addition, if a person leaves the country a short period, e.g. up to 3 weeks in any 12 month period, disability allowance may be paid when the person returns to the State depending on the individual circumstances of the case.
