This instrument sets out the rules and eligibility criteria for Carer Support Payment (CSP), a form of assistance to provide support to people providing regular and substantial care to another individual who normally receives a certain rate of disability assistance. This new form of social security assistance will be administered by Social Security Scotland and will replace Carer's Allowance (CA) in Scotland.
This instrument also includes provision to transfer the benefits of individuals who live in Scotland and receive CA (which is currently administered by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) on behalf of Scottish Ministers), to instead receive CSP, to be administered by Social Security Scotland on behalf of the Scottish Ministers.
