Written answers (Question to Social)

Carer's allowance (CA) is a means-tested social assistance 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.

I am advised that there is no current application registered for the person concerned for CA. If the person in question wishes to make an application, she should complete and return an application form (CR1) to CA section in the social welfare services office, Longford, as soon as possible.

I hope this clarifies the position for the Deputy.
