    Hi,
    You can't claim Carers Allowance for yourself, someone else can claim for looking after you for at least 35 hours per week but it would be their money and not yours.

    Do you have a PIP daily living award? Do you claim an Income Related benefit like ESA, JSA or Income support. If so and you live alone or classed as living alone then you could claim Severe Disability premium (SDP)


    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.
