The Domiciliary Care Allowance (DCA) claim made by this lady has now been awarded and is in payment. A decision letter issued to her on the 30th July 2019 to inform her that her DCA was awarded on appeal, with effect from 1st August 2018.

Arrears due for this period issued with her August 2019 payment on the 20th August 2019.

I hope this clarifies the position for the Deputy.
