Childcare And Other Costs

Childcare costs

The most that we can repay you if you employ someone to cover your absence or for childcare is 67.00 for each day you attend to give evidence. You must ask them to fill in this section of the claim form to confirm how much you have paid them. You cannot normally claim for employing someone to cover your absence or for childcare costs if you are also claiming loss of earnings.

Other costs

If you have had any other costs not covered explicitly in the claim form, you should give full details in this section and provide receipts. The maximum allowance payable for such costs is 67.00 for each day you attend the Inquiry to give evidence.
