An application for domiciliary care allowance (DCA) was received from the person in question on the 3rd November 2010. This application together with medical reports has been forwarded to one of the Department's Medical Assessors for a medical opinion on the case. Upon receipt of this opinion a decision will issue to the customer. Currently it takes eight weeks to process a DCA application.
