The person concerned applied for domiciliary care allowance in respect of two children. The first application was received on 5 September 2014. The application was not allowed as the child was not considered to satisfy the qualifying conditions for the allowance. A letter issued on 3 December 2014 advising of the decision.

An application for the second child was received on 15 September 2014. The person concerned was notified on 4 December 2014 that this application was successful and that the allowance has been awarded from 1 October 2014.

In the case of the application which was refused on medical grounds the applicant may submit additional information and/or ask for the decision to be reviewed or they may appeal the decision directly to the Social Welfare Appeals Office within twenty one day
