Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection
Domiciliary Care Allowance Applications
214. To ask the Minister for Employment Affairs and Social Protection when a decision will be made on a domiciliary care allowance application by a person (details supplied) in County Donegal; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [45759/19]
An application for Domiciliary Care Allowance (DCA) was received from this lady on the 30th September 2019. Applications received mid August 2019 are currently being finalised. The application will be considered by a deciding officer in due course and the decision notified to her as soon as possible.
I hope this clarifies the position for the Deputy.
