Carers lump sum, not for everyone.

    Just thought I'd stick it up as others may be wondering.

    The carers lump sum payment will NOT be paid to anyone who was in receipt of a lump sum payment last week.

    That is very general or broad but the gist of it is, if you are in receipt of the half rate carers due to getting another welfare payment or received a lump sum last week (usually disability, invalidity, etc) then you will not be receiving a second lump sum this week.

    Apparently the phone lines have "crashed" multiple times this morning due to the number of people calling up asking why they did not receive it. No mention was made anywhere (in the budget, citizens information or welfare website) about people only being entitled to receive one of the lump sum payments hence the volume of calls to the department this morning.

    I want to stress I DO NOT work for or have any connection to the department, and this is information I got from enquiring myself this morning on another's behalf (after spending two hours trying to get through).
