Increase for qualified adult is a means tested payment, based on the means of the qualified adult. Following a recent means review, the qualified adult increase was stopped.

Based on updated information, the means of the qualified adult were reviewed and the person concerned now qualifies for a reduced payment. Notification of this decision issued to the person concerned on 2 December 2019.

I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
