    Hi @faydhar is anyone else claiming Carer's Allowance or carer element for your mother's partner? If not, she should be receiving the carer element (previously an extra £160.20, but now £162.92). If this isn't in the payment breakdown, she should get in touch with her case manager through her Universal Credit journal.
