The Domiciliary Care Allowance (DCA) claim made by this lady has now been awarded and her monthly payments will commence on October 15th 2019 . A decision letter issued to her on the 14th September 2019 to inform her that her DCA was awarded on appeal, with effect from 1st April 2018.

Arrears due for this period issued to her by cheque on the 14th September 2019.

I hope this clarifies the position for the Deputy.
