new style esa and carers allowance
hi I have been receiving carers allowance for my disabled daughter for a number of years, we are now in receipt of universal credit, and I have been awarded new style esa support group, so the carers allowance is being deducted from the universal credit, but now im not getting the carers premium either, I rang uc and was told this is because im not allowed to be a carer, so would I be better discontinuing my claim for carers allowance? also I applied for pip and was turned down by tribunal because I receive carers allowance, or so I was told by my advisor. its just we rely on the carers allowance weekly at the moment.
