"Boarder" carers allowance heads up
If you are on "boarder" Carers allowance (where the person you care for spends part of the year, usually term time, elsewhere and so you cannot claim) but they have not actually gone back for covid reasons and are still at home so you are still eligible for CA, just check that it has not automatically been stopped at the time they would normally leave home.
I just checked and found that I hadn't had any since 21st September, despite my son not having gone back to Uni for the time being, so I've used the online CA "notify of changes" service to ask for it re-instated, and back dated, until we inform them that he has returned.
Maybe this is correct procedure, but just at the moment my eye is on many other things! Also I had actually requested to come off boarders in March so I wasn't expecting it to stop!
Who knows how long that will take...
