I confirm that the department has received an application for carer's allowance (CA) from the person concerned. The application was referred to a social welfare inspector (SWI) on 23 October 2015 to assess the level of care being provided, assess means and confirm that all the conditions for receipt of CA are satisfied.

Once the SWI has reported, a deciding officer will make a decision on the application without delay and the person concerned will be notified directly of the outcome.
