    Your dad claiming carers allowance won't affect your UC payments.

    Hi @ahope3112, welcome to the community! It's lovely to have you with us. 
    As Poppy says, your dad receiving carers allowance shouldn't affect your Universal Credit payments. 
    If you have any queries about anything else or any other element of your Universal Credit claim, please don't hesitate to ask! :)
