UnPaid UK Carers receiving Personal Independence Payment.

Tell us a bit about yourself here.
Hello.
Before I begin going on the long and hard process of claiming the Personal Independence Payment benefit that the UK government gives to liable people I would like to know are there any ill healthed Unpaid Carers in the UK who have had their accessment and receive the benefit themselves?
Thank You.
Yes.

Commonplace ... a disabled family carer receiving PIP and Carers Allowance.
PIP can be paid regardless of your income, savings or National Insurance contribution record and is a tax free benefit.

You can get PIP even if you are working or studying.

If you are a carer who has care needs, you can claim PIP for yourself and this will not affect your Carer's Allowance.


Your previous posting ... anything arise out of that ?
