    Hi @lau,

    Welcome to Scope's online community! It's great to have you on board.

    I've moved your post into our Ask a Benefits Advisor category, where @BenefitsTrainingCo may be able to advise in terms of the timeframe.

    There's also a number for general enquiries relating to Carer's Allowance which might be useful. You can call 0345 608 4321 from 8:30am to 5pm from Monday to Thursday and 8:30am to 4:30pm on Friday, and they may be able to help you.

    I hope this helps. If you have any other questions, then please do get in touch.
