Disability Allowance Eligibility
Following a review of this lady's entitlement to disability allowance (DA), she was deemed to have means in excess of the statutory limit for her circumstances due to earnings from her partner's employment. DA was disallowed with effect from 20 February 2019.
The person concerned was notified in writing of this decision on 14 February 2019 and was also notified of their right to request a review of this decision or to appeal it to the independent Social Welfare Appeals Office (SWAO). No request for an appeal or review has been received.
I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
