We are delighted to announce the launch of our new KOD Lyons Solicitors support pack for applicants submitting an application for Domiciliary Care Allowance (DCA), Carer’s Allowance and Carer’s Benefit and Disability Allowance.
This pack is a user-friendly guide which will hopefully assist people in navigating their way through a sometimes complex system.
Our KOD Lyons support guide is based upon our experiences of assisting people with DCA applications, reviewing carers files, helping with reviews of negative decisions, preparing appeals for clients and attending at oral hearings with the social welfare appeals office.
Our guide examines the statutory criteria and the evidence needed to prepare an application. It also offers insights and advice as to what to do at each stage of the process and also includes advice on the backdating of payments once qualified.
