    Hi, can anyone confirm whether claiming CA affects the Housing Benefit you may get, please? DWP conducting full benefits review on me and I have claimed CA for 6 years but apparently HB were not aware of this.
    Will I end up now owing back thousands?? :shock: thank you.

    Hi & welcome Joanne

    What ever you receive means tested or not has to be declared when applying for housing benefit. When you claim carers allowance it can also effect the person you care for benefits.

    https://www.carersuk.org/help-and-advic ... ng-benefit

    There are always ways to sort problems out. As suggested speak with Carers UK helpline and or Citizens Advice.
