Carer's Benefit Applications
234. To ask the Minister for Employment Affairs and Social Protection when a decision will be made on a carer's benefit application by a person (details supplied) in County Donegal; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [40026/19]
An application for CARB was received from the person concerned on 8 June 2019.
The carers leave commenced on 2 September 2019. The application was awarded to the person concerned on 27 September 2019, effective from 5 September 2019. The first payment will issue to her nominate bank account on 3 October 2019.
Arrears of allowance due from 5 September 2019 to 2 October 2019 will issue shortly.
The person concerned was notified on 27 September 2019 of this decision, the reason for it and of her right of review and appeal.
I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
