Carers allowance and carers premiums question
Hi guys,I've been currently receiving DLA,tho I am now changed over to pip first payment due on the 23rd of march,all that aside my question is that I have been living on my own since November 2017,my mother always claimed carers allowance for me then obviously I got my knew home and am living on my own meanwhile my mother was in intensive care due do major heart surgery,so she was still classed as NY carer even tjoi was living on my own and didn't know much about how the system works but my mum finally got back on her feet and ask me to report the change that she had not been my carer for the last 3-4 months although she was receiving the CA for me she may have to pay that back,would I get it back dated to the date I said I have been living on my own..any help would be widely appreciated thanx
