    Hi,

    I claim carers allowance for looking after my daughter and i also claim PIP for myself. Although the things i do for my daughter are not physical things so it doesn't contradict the reasons why i'm claiming PIP. Therefore the answer is it depends on your caring duties and the reasons for claiming PIP.
