Can one of you beautiful people help me.

    If you stop getting CA, you just need to send UC and once they have confirmation from CA they will correct your UC.

    If there is no financial gain claiming CA if it is deducted when from the UC (although the CA goes given you Class 1 NI credits whereas UC only gives Class 3). You don’t need to be receiving CA to get the carer element of UC (which cannot be included for someone receives LCWRA element).
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

    Yes it can be backdated but you'll need to reapply for CA. However, as calcotti advised, there's no financial gain to claiming CA and UC.

    If it's you that's the carer then providing you're not claiming the LCWRA element of UC for yourself then you can claim carers element of UC, this will increase your maximum UC entitlement by £185.86/month.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    I just want to no if the money stopped from ca why pip was at Mr will be repaid
    Reason my partner going to claim carers is to stop uc forcing her to look for work if that makes sense.

    As previously advised, the CA can be backdated to the date it stopped. As a carer claiming just carers element of UC there will also be no work commiments. Does your UC include carers element as well?

    What do you mean by “CA paid you for not getting CA” 

    If you apply for CA again then it will be backdated to the date it stopped. 

    If the CA wasn’t deducted from your UC then you will have an overpayment for UC. 

    You didn’t answer the question that was asked a few times. Does your UC include the carers element? (Assuming you don’t claim the LCWRA element for yourself)

    As advised, you need to highlight that to UC so they can correct your payment.

    Yes but if they claimed CA again then it will be backdated to the date it stopped. Therefore there wouldn't be any need to tell them. (unless they took the payment twice)

    DWP can’t stop your award because it’s now in the hands of HMCTS.
