    You need to be claiming a qualifying disability benefit such as PIP daily living or DLA mid/high rate care for someone to be able to claim either carers allowance or carers element of UC for looking after you.
    If you’re just claiming LCWRA this doesn’t entitle anyone to claim carers allowance for looking after you. 
    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.
