Carer's Allowance (CA) is a means-tested payment, made to a person who is habitually resident in the State and providing full-time care and attention to a child or an adult who has such a disability that they require that level of care. An increased payment can be made where full-time care is being provided to two people.
I can confirm that my department received two applications for CA from the person concerned on 17 May 2021.
CA was awarded to the person concerned in respect of both care recipients on 26 May 2021 with effect from 10 June 2021. The first payment will issue to his nominated bank account on 10 June 2021.
The person concerned was notified on 26 May 2021 of this decision, the reason for it and of his right of review and appeal.
I hope this clarifies the position for the Deputy.
