Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection
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 for the lady concerned on 25 November 2019. The claim was refused on the grounds that the medical conditions for the scheme were not satisfied. She was notified on 28 February 2020 of this decision, the reasons for it and of her right of review and appeal.
I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
