Should I apply for carers allowance?
My 4 year old daughter is Autistic, goes to a SEND nursery and they have done a EHCP so she can move into thier school in September. Due to her age, I am getting in courage to prepare for work but with the job centre advising me to claim carers allowance so I can stay on Income support instead. As I am also disabled, receiving PIP with mobility, I am concerned as a few friends have told me that if I claim carers I will loose my disability as it will be classed as if I am a carer then I cannot claim as disabled. Please can you advise the best course for me?
