The Scottish Government is paying a supplement to people in receipt of carer’s allowance.

If you are receiving carer’s allowance now you do not need to claim the supplement. It will be paid automatically in two equal amounts of £226.20.

Payments dates for 2020 are to be confirmed. The previous payments were made in June and December 2019.

This money will not affect any other benefit you are receiving.
