Lost carer payments on UC
Iam on UC and was up until recently receiving the carers element of UC but they took it off me because I was given the higher disability element of UC and they said that I could non longer look after my 17 year old son who has cystic fibrocis. I couldn't understand This because I was still getting carers allowance and you also need to be able to look after someone for 35 hours a week or more? I do find it very hard sometimes to do the things thatvi used to but he's my son and I will try my best even though I feel dreadful. Well now my carers allowance has suddenly stopped is it because they've stopped my carers element ? Can I get it back in my UC? Please help it will be much appreciated!
