PIP stopped and then reinstated, do I need to reapply for carers allowance?
I'm a little confused here, hope someone can help. My wife has been on PIP for a number of years, and I also claimed for carers allowance. After a reassessment, my wife had her PIP stopped in December 2017 resulting in my carers allowance also being stopped. We both sent back letters asking for the decision to be reconsidered, and surprisingly with no letters or any other kind of notification, she noticed that her PIP had been paid back into her bank this month (Feb) . She phoned to enquire and was informed her PIP was reinstated but at a much reduced rate. As yet I haven't had my carers allowance reinstated, so do I have to re-apply for CA or should I wait and expect it to start again automatically ?
