    Your son's UC claim is just for him, as he's entitled to it in his own right. A claim for carers allowance that you make will not affect his UC.
    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.
