Carer’s Allowance Supplement payment date

A carer is helping someone walk

Carers in Scotland who were getting Carer’s Allowance on 12 April 2021 will receive a Carer’s Allowance Supplement of £231.40 on 16 June 2021.

The supplement is an extra payment, paid twice a year, for people in Scotland who get Carer’s Allowance.

If eligible, you will receive a letter notifying you a payment has been made. Carers do not need to apply for the supplement as it is paid automatically if they are due a payment.

Some payments may take slightly longer but if you have still not received a letter or payment by 23 June call us free on 0800 182 2222.
