I've just received a letter stating it's £62.10 from 11th April 2016, so the answer seems to be 'no'.

Life is weird. I've been working all my life and because I have a bit squirrelled away all I am entitled to is £62.10 a week. It's a complete joke.

The rick get ricker and the poorer get poorer, simple as that with these cons in government, and the cons think we are all in it together, but the poorer are in it more than some. :(

If the Mp s just would spare a day or two in each home to see what us carers do they would be amazed. Its really tough going. The Rich get richer & never mind about the rest of us. It really make s me so annoyed. Regards Amandah

Well maybe if the English hadn't voted them in us Scots who didn't vote for them wouldn't be suffering as well! At least you got what you voted for. We didn't and won't until we get independence.

Actually, Eun, the SNP has said that - if they are still in power after the Scottish election in May - Carers Allowance will rise to the level of Jobseekers Allowance.
