Can I get any other payments with Carer's Benefit?

You will get a Respite Care Grant on the first Thursday in June each year for each person you care for, provided both you (the carer) and the person(s) that you care for reside in the State. There is no need to apply for the Respite Care Grant if you qualify for Carer’s Benefit, as it will be paid to you automatically.
