Do you think my wife can get carers allowance as she looks after me and helps me?

    Hi @chrissb61 In order for your wife to be in receipt of Carers Allowance, you need to be receiving the daily living component of PIP, or Middle/High rate care of DLA, or Attendance Allowance. Are you receiving 1 of these benefits?
