Written answers (Question to Employment)

An application for Domiciliary Care Allowance (DCA) was received from this lady on the 14th June 2019. Applications received early June 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.

Decisions on new applications are currently taking approximately 10 to 12 weeks.

I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
