Invalidity pension (IP) is a payment for people who are permanently incapable of work because of illness or incapacity and for no other reason and who satisfy the pay related social insurance (PRSI) contribution conditions.

The department received a claim for IP for the gentleman concerned on 30 June 2020.  The claim was refused on the grounds that the medical conditions for the scheme were not satisfied.  He was notified on 22 July 2020 of this decision, the reasons for it and of his right of review and appeal.

I hope this clarifies the position for the Deputy.
