how do you get carers allowance

Postby funnylady » Mon May 04, 2015 4:48 pm

My partner wants to go for carers allowance because he helps me all the time I am getting pip.
How does he go about.
HE wants to care for me full time because I am in so much pain.
I do need the help.
does he have to ring straight away now I am getting carers allowance.
Just need help and advice.
any advice please.

Hi, you can apply for carers online, it's on .government website, I did it last wk for my partner and will know in 4 wks if I will get something, hope this has helped.
