  • Extra payment for carers to help during pandemic

    Created: 03/06/2020, Updated: 04/06/2020

    The Scottish Government will be making a Coronavirus Carer’s Allowance Supplement payment later this month.

    This one-off payment is in addition to the regular six monthly Carer’s Allowance Supplement. As a result, eligible carers will get a payment of at least £460.20. This will be paid from Friday 26 June.

    As with the current supplement, carers will not need to do anything to get this extra payment as it will be paid automatically to people who were living in Scotland and in receipt of Carer’s Allowance on 13 April 2020 eligibility date. Social Security Scotland will write to eligible carers in advance
