Pension lump sum

Dewslad Community member Posts: 3 Listener
Hi, I am due to take a small lump sum to help pay my mortgage off and I am a carer for my daughter. Do I have to declare this and would it affect my carers allowance at all.

    It will not affect your carers allowance. Are you claiming any other benefits?
    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.
