Invalidity Pension Reviews
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 department received a claim for IP from this lady on 30 August 2018. Her claim was disallowed on the grounds that the medical conditions for the scheme were not satisfied. She was notified on 11 December 2018 of this decision, the reasons for it and of her right of review and appeal.
She requested a review of this decision and submitted further medical evidence on 13 February 2019 in support of her request. Following a review of all the information available it has been decided that there is no change to the original decision. She was notified on 22 February 2019 of the outcome of the review.
I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
