Invalidity Pension Applications Data
Invalidity pension (IP) is a payment for people who are permanently incapable of work because of illness or incapacity and who satisfy the pay related social insurance (PRSI) contribution conditions.
The table shows the number of applications for Invalidity Pension received in July 2017 compared to July 2018 and the average time taken to award a new claim for each month.
|Month||No of applications||Processing time|
|July 2017||777||6 weeks|
|July 2018||764||7 weeks|
The Department is committed to ensuring that claims and reviews are processed as expeditiously as possible.
I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
