 received carers allowance for dad but lived elsewhere looking after a friend who I could not   register  carers allowance  as only for one person dad passed away in October I was receiving some income support and small amount of housing benefit  I know the carers allowance pay for 6 weeks even after a death I believe  I have now registered the other person I look after care for who I have done for 6 months as I have not changed address at all  and the person lives at the shared address as me  will I need to inform any one or do any other new claims other than the carers allowance which has been done as it states 3 months can be backdated  for the new claim  so there will be  a transition I presume  ..and no spaces  of not  claiming any carers allowance  many thanks
