Written answers (Question to Social)

An application for Domiciliary Care Allowance (DCA) was received from this lady on the 9th November 2020. In the interest of fairness to all customers, applications are processed in date of receipt order. Currently applications received in October 2020 are being finalised. This application will be considered by a deciding officer in due course and the decision notified to the person concerned her as soon as possible.

I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
