Hi everyone , can you please advise me as to what day Carers get their carers allowance? The person who cares for me is refusing to tell me as they owe me money 

thanks

    Hello @AWilson89 and a warm welcome to the community. 

    I don't believe there's a specific day, it's individual based on when you apply and can be paid weekly or 4-weekly. I've moved your post into the 'Carer's Allowance' section of the community as hopefully someone there will be able to confirm for you. :)

    @thespiceman i think what @AWilson89 means is that the person owes them money from something else, rather than their benefits not being received from the person receiving the carers allowance. At least this is how i read it as. :)

    @thespiceman yes, it certainly does happen and it's so sad indeed.

    I'm my daughters appointee and receive all her PIP money into my bank (Enhanced for both) but i wouldn't even dream of taking her money. I give her small amounts throughout the 4 weeks but only because she would spend it all the minute she had it. She pays for the extra support she has herself and i just help her manage her money.

    I'm not bad thanks. Hope you're well too?

    Take care!
