Carers / lcwra

susanolivier25 Member Posts: 3 Listener
I have been claiming carers allowance for the last 6 years for my son (aged 26) who lives at home with direct payments and receives high rate pip. I have just recently applied and still waiting for an assesment for universal credit disability for myself. My question is should i give up carers allowance before my assessment? Or should i pass it onto my husband to claim carers allowance?  Thanks
