Carers element

Good morning 
I am just wondering, as I am currently receiving LCWRA, and me and my husband are on a joint claim, does this mean that he could apply for the carers element, even though he currently works full time? 
Any help is greatly appreciated

    No, not with a LCWRA award. You need to have an award of either daily living PIP or DLA mid/high rate care for your husband to claim carers element.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
