I confirm that the Department received an application for carer’s allowance from the person in question on the 2nd May 2012. A decision was made on the 6th February 2013 awarding the allowance. All arrears due issued by cheque on that date and the first weekly payment issued to the designated post office on the 7th February 2013.
