The CCS bands have now been awarded to CCS 2018 registrations and the registrations have been approved.
Please review the bands awarded. Your CCS 2018 contract value will now match the total of your approved registrations and your payment schedule will adjust accordingly.
Where eligibility is based on PHN referral, Tusla referral, employment programme or CCS verification form, the band currently awarded is based on the eligibility documents submitted with the registration.
What happens where the approved band is lower than the requested band?
Where a document does not provide this evidence or where no document is attached, we will provide information to you in the registration’s status comment. In the status comment we will inform you of what the band approved is based on and what document should be submitted to be awarded the higher band requested. Before submitting any documents, please ensure they meet the criteria outlined in the CCS Supporting Documentation Guidelines 2018-2019 on the PIP Portal. The appeal documents can be attached as an “Appeal” registration request.
Please be aware, that it will take us several days to review all of these registrations.
Please note that band A was requested on many registrations, but band AJ was awarded. A medical card combined with either Jobseekers Allowance/Benefit or Supplementary Welfare Allowance will give band AJ and not band A. Before appealing please confirm with the parent, the allowance they are in receipt of.
