Carer's benefit (CARB) is a PRSI based payment, made to persons who are providing full-time care and attention to a person who has such a disability that they require that level of care.
An application for CARB was received from the person concerned on 27 March 2019.
The application was awarded to the person concerned with effect from 22 August 2019 when her carer’s leave commences. The first payment will issue to her nominated bank account on 22 August 2019.
The person concerned was notified on 6 July 2019 of this decision, the reason for it and of her right of review and appeal.
I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
