It’s capped at €315 for someone caring for more than one person.People who receive Carer’s Allowance are not affected by the error.The department apologised to people whose payments have been affected and advised them to contact the Community Welfare Service at their local Intreo centre if they need financial assistance today.“The Department is working on restoring payments to these customers as quickly as possible and we will keep you updated,” a spokesperson said.It later issued a statement saying all carers who experienced a delay with their payment today will receive the money in their accounts tomorrow morning.READ: The new project helping parents develop their kids’ emotional resilience> Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article last_img
