Carers Allowance wait after PIP Tribunal success?

kevin888kevin888 Member Posts: 53 Courageous
I won my tribunal in December and am now getting PIP Enhanced for both. Put in claim for CA for my wife from date my DLA stopped in May ( which my PIP backpay was from 29 weeks) so the CA will be backdated to that date but not heard anything from CA department? my PIP is now being paid and my latest ESA letter has the PIP award on it and states CA is now being taken from the ESA as it was with my DLA. Should I phone the CA dept and ask or will it automatically be paid? Thanks

    It won't do any harm to ring them

    Carers Allowance is taking anything between 8-12 weeks. It maybe a while before you hear anything.

    Thanks for answers Wife had letter today claim successful will be paid from 4th Feb says will have to wait longer for backpay because of my ESA? (My ESA increased while not having DLA or PIP, now back to rate it was when I had DLA)
