universal credit and carers allowance

gilgirl Member Posts: 2 Listener
Hi I have been claiming universal credit for over a year and have just claimed carers allowance. They said the carers allowance will be back dated 3 months as I was caring then but my friend who I look after was waiting for her pip to be sorted. Will universal credit want to take this backdated amount off me? Also will they say I should of told them when I started to look after my friend even though I wasnt getting paid then? Sorry for long post! Thanks
