Eligible carers in Scotland will now receive a double payment of the Carer’s Allowance Supplement under legislation passed by the Scottish Parliament earlier this month.

The Carer’s Allowance Supplement (Scotland) Bill was passed to acknowledge the additional pressures carers in Scotland have faced as a result of the pandemic.

The December payment of the Carer’s Allowance Supplement will be doubled to £462.80, and is paid automatically to anyone qualifying for it.
