Carers allowance question.

Hubby is just filling in the carers allowance forms. They ask when he wants the claim to start from. Does that mean he can backdate the claim to when DLA was first agreed? That will be beginning of March. Thanks Pat

Hi Pat I would have thought that it should be dated from the day he started caring for you ? Try ringing CAB and asking them maybe ?

I’ve just completed a form for my neighbour and you can only backdate 3 months.

If you have any query ring the Benefit enquiry Line 0800 882200.
