Carer’s Allowance Supplement
Carer’s Allowance Supplement is an extra payment for people getting Carer’s Allowance from the DWP. This is because the Scottish Government knows that what carers do is important. The DWP will continue to pay Carer’s Allowance until delivery of this benefit is fully transferred Social Security Scotland. At that point, the increase will be added to your usual payment.
