I hope that someone can help me out on this matter. I claim carers allowance for my youngest child. And just recently my long term partner moved in with us. He works, so i informed the Carers Allowance department. I lost the child premium that i claimed for our daughter and now receive just the basic amount of Ã‚Â£48.65. My question is this, am i still entitled to Carers Allowance because of my partner working? I have had a review form through the post recently and i dont know whether or not this is standard procedure or will the benefit payed for our daughter be took away? Im sure that i have one of these forms before.I dont work but iam full time carer to her. Im her main carer. Im just a little confused. Hope someone can assist!
