Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection
Disability Allowance Applications
1837. To ask the Minister for Employment Affairs and Social Protection when a disability allowance will be approved for a person (details supplied); and if she will make a statement on the matter. [35619/19]
The person concerned submitted an application for disability allowance (DA) on 14 June 2019. Their application, based upon all the evidence submitted, was refused on medical grounds as it was not found that this gentleman was substantially restricted in taking up employment.
The person concerned was notified in writing of this decision on 22 August 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).
I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
