Department of Social Protection
Disability Allowance Applications
112. To ask the Tánaiste and Minister for Social Protection when a person (details supplied) in County Galway will receive a decision on an application for a disability allowance; the reason for the delay; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [41342/15]
I confirm the department received an application for disability allowance from the person in question on 6 October 2015. In order to determine the circumstances of the person concerned, his file was forwarded to a local Social Welfare Inspector (SWI). S/he will arrange to meet with the person in question as soon as possible.
A decision on his entitlement to disability allowance will be given on receipt of the SWI’s report. The person concerned will be notified directly of the outcome.
