Carer's allowance (CA) is a means-tested social assistance payment made to a person who is habitually resident in the State and who is providing full-time care and attention to a child or an adult who has such a disability that as a result they require that level of care.
An application for CA was received from the person concerned on 23 October 2018. The application is currently being processed and once completed, the person concerned will be notified directly of the outcome.
In the meantime, the partner of the person concerned is in receipt of a Working Family Payment.
I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
