    No you don't because it's not you that claiming the carers element, it's your partner.
    Do you know which descriptor you think applies to you and why? This is what the Tribunal will want to know.

    To qualify for LCWRA you need to satisfy at least one of the descriptors, which you can see in the link i posted above. This is what you need to concentrate on for the Tribunal.
