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 6 June 2019.
The application was awarded to the person concerned on 2 October 2019 with effect from 6 June 2019. The first payment will issue to his nominated bank account on 10 October 2019.
Arrears of allowance due from 6 June 2019 to 3 October 2019 have issued also.
The person concerned was notified on 2 October 2019 of this decision, the reason for it and of his right of review and appeal.
I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
