Help please with stopping carers allowance
Posted: Sun Apr 12, 2020 8:58 pm
Hi could I get some advice please. My friend is a carer and claims carers allowance but their mental health has deteriorated and are unable to continue caring for their relative. They are cancelling the claim tomorrow. They also claim income support. Would the carers allowance and the income support end straight away please or would there be a run on? If not would they need to claim universal credit? I’ve tried googling it for them but it’s really not clear. Thank you for your help.
