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.
There is no record in my Department of a claim for CA having been made by the person concerned. If they wish to make an application, they should complete and return the application form (CR1) that I have arranged to issue to them.
Only on receipt of a fully completed application form can entitlement to CA be determined.
I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
