I confirm that my department received an application for carer’s allowance (CA) from the person concerned on 11 January 2018.
The application was awarded to the person concerned on 22 February 2018 and the first payment will issue to her nominated bank account on 1 March 2018.
Arrears of allowance due from 11 January 2018 to 28 February 2018 have also issued.
The person concerned was notified on 22 February 2018 of this decision, the reason for it and of her right of review and appeal.
I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
