Carers allowance- can I switch from looking after my husband to my son?
Hi I'm after some advice regarding carers allowance. I care for my husband who is epileptic he recives lower rate mobility and middle rate care as he receives middle rate care I claim carers allowance. My son is Autisc and recieves middle rate care. So i was just wondering can I switch from being my husband carer to my sons carer ? My husband has to apply for pip soon as his Dla award is due to end early next year ,if he fails to be awarded pip can i just swap my carers allowance to be my sons carer or will i need to re apply for carers allowance?
