Carers allowance and receiving inheritance
Hello. My mother is likely to receive money from the WILL following her mother’s death, however, she receives carers allowance. Will this affect her benefit, particularly if it is over £16,000? At the moment she has a joint account with her spouse who is in receipt of PIP and ESA so I highly doubt the money/cheque can be cashed into that account as it will affect my father’s benefits for sure. She will have to open a separate account right?
