Why doesn't,t my partner , who cares for me, now been told that because she's paid monthly, won,t receive carers allowance on certain months, because monthly is sometimes 4weeks 3 days etc? If she were paid weekly she,d get it EVERY month!!! We can't understand why? If it's worked out 52 weeks in a year , what difference does it make? Her part time wages stay the same!! Whether paid monthly or weekly!
Nothing has changed since she received it last year?
Have the carers allowance got it wrong or have the government moved the goalposts? Thank you. Alan.
