Carer's allowance (CA) is a means-tested social assistance payment made to a person who is habitually resident in the State and who is providing full-time care and attention to a child or an adult who has such a disability that as a result they require that level of care.

I can confirm that arrears of CA due from 31 January 2019 to 6 November 2019, will issue to the nominated bank account of the person concerned on 7 November 2019. The person concerned was notified of this on 4 November 2019.

Arrears of the Carers Support Grant will also issue to the nominated bank account of the person concerned on 7 November 2019.The person concerned was notified of this on 1 November 2019.

I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
