TOPIC: Carers allowance

Carers allowance 1 month 3 days ago #238762

Please can I be advised, if it is appropriate here to ask if you can claim Carers allowance for two members of my family? I look after my father daily, who lives 10 doors from me AND my chronically sick adult daughter who lives with me and my husband.
I look forward to your response and thankyou

You can only claim Carers Allowance against one person, they will have to have a DLA Middle or Higher Rate Care award or a PIP Daily Living award (there are others).
