Written answers (Question to Employment)

An application for Domiciliary Care Allowance ( DCA) was received from this lady on 20 May 2019.  Applications received in late April 2019 are currently being finalised.  The application will be considered by a deciding officer in due course and the decision notified to her as soon as possible.

I hope this clarifies the position for the Deputy.
