TOPIC: PIP & Carer's Allowance

PIP & Carer's Allowance 5 days 16 hours ago #217685

Good Morning

I have been receiving PIP higher rate (both) firbsime time, but nié my sister, who need to devote more time to me, and who lives with me, wishes to claim Carer's Allowance.

Thecfirm is rather ambiguous as to whether she receiving Carer's would affect my PIP. THe form says the DWP will look at my PIP claim and I have to sign that part of the form accepting this,

Can you confirm whether or not a relative receiving Carers with affect my PIP claim?

I also receive contribution based ESA Support group and am also worried that might be looked at and be affected to by my sister claiming for Carers. I do not receive severe disability premium.
Thank you,

Your sister claiming CA will not have any effect on your PIP or ESA(CB).
