DWP now quoting 12 week delay for Carers Allowance. (ref : phone call to 0345 608 4321 23/11/2017 15:17). Another disgraceful persecution and discrimination of carers. No doubt caused by the Universal Credit shambles. Write to your MP, lets flood them.
David ... are you claiming any other benefits / allowances in addition to CA ?

UC arrived on your manor ?


Whilst CA is outside UC , other bits are not.

David, just to reassure you, if you qualify, it will be backdated to the day of your claim. If you phoned up for a claim form and returned it within the ?28 days on the form, it will be backdated to the day you rang up.
(Others please note, it's best to ring up for a claim form, otherwise the claim date is the day the form is returned!)
