As part of the next emergency coronavirus legislation, the Scottish Government is proposing an additional £19.2 million investment in Carer’s Allowance Supplement. This is in recognition of the additional pressure carers are under as a result of the ongoing pandemic. If approved by parliament, around 83,000 eligible Scottish carers will get an extra £230.10 through a special one-off Coronavirus Carer’s Allowance Supplement in June. As with the current supplement, they will not need to do anything to get this extra payment as it will be paid automatically to people in receipt of Carer’s Allowance. This would mean that carers receive an additional £690.30 this year on top of their Carer’s Allowance and any other income.
