Over 90,000 Carers in Scotland Have Benefited from the Supplement Carers Allowance

The next pay out for eligible carers for the Supplement Carers Allowance will be available to most of them before Christmas, on Friday 13th of December.

The Supplement is an extra payment brought in by the Scottish Government because the Carer’s Allowance from the UK Government was so low.

91,550 carers in Scotland have so far benefited from the extra payments since September 2018.

The Carer’s Allowance Supplement is paid to carers who are in receipt of Carer’s Allowance and living in Scotland on the relevant ‘qualifying date’. The qualifying date for the December payment was 14 October 2019.

It is an automatic payment – no need to apply separately for it.
