Invalidity Pension Appeals
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 16 July 2019. Her claim was disallowed on the grounds that the medical conditions for the scheme were not satisfied. She was notified on 20 November 2019 of this decision, the reasons for it and of her right of review and appeal.
To date there is no record of a review or an appeal request of this disallowance decision from the lady in question.
I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
