Reading now: 638

Tens of thousands of people in Scotland claiming Carer’s Allowance will receive a one-off payment for £288.60 on Friday, June 7.

Carer’s Allowance Supplement is an automatic payment made twice each year by the Scottish Government to recognise the important contribution made by unpaid carers.

To qualify for the automatic payment next week, people need to have been in receipt of either Carer’s Allowance from the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), or the newly launched Carer Support Payment from Social Security Scotland, on April 8, 2024.

People who applied for either benefit before that deadline, who are waiting on an award decision, will receive the payment in arrears if their claim is successful.
