Carer's Allowance Appeals
129. To ask the Tánaiste and Minister for Social Protection when a person (details supplied) in County Mayo will receive a decision on an appeal under the carer's allowance scheme; the reason for the delay; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [45252/15]
Carer's Allowance (CA) is a social assistance payment, made to persons who are providing full-time care and attention to a person who has a disability such that they require that level of care.
Following a review, it was determined that the person in respect of whom CA was being paid, no longer required full-time care and attention.
The person concerned was notified on 18 November 2015 of this decision, the reason for it and of her right of review and appeal.
The additional information included with this question will be accepted as a request from the applicant for a review of this decision. Once the review is completed, the person in question will be notified directly of the outcome. In the meantime, carer’s allowance will remain in payment.
