Abolish Carers allowance it is a benefit in name only, A total waste of time

To replace CA they should introduce a Carers component to DLA. To claim this you should meet the same conditions that you have to meet to receive CA now. All carers that are entitled to receive CA would receive DLA and be entitled to the Carers component.


The above would address a number of problems.

(1)The over lapping rule would cease to be a problem
(2)It would recognise the fact that our life's are affected by disability as much as the people we care for.
(3)Everyone that is entitled to CA would be financially better off and actually receiving a benefit
