Career element

hello20hello20 Member Posts: 93 Connected
Please can some one help partner recieved pip an I care for my partner 35 hours a week I notified Uc was awarded career element .
but no back dated payment was recieved 
When I asked about back dated payment the response was 
The carers element is only paid from the assessment period it is verified in so it will not be back dated as you didn't inform us about the caring until feb so we will pay the carers element from feb

    Hi,

    I also note from previous threads that you were also receiving the LCWRA element until recently, is that correct? If so then the same person can't receive this element and the carers element at the same time. Who was claiming the LCWRA element and who is the carer? sorry but i'm not sure who is who here.

    When did her LCWRA stop @hello20? What date did you find out you were awarded PIP and what date did you report her being a carer to UC?
