From DLA to PIP, do I need to inform carers allowance?

My daughter has just been awarded the enhanced rates of PIP after being on DLA. As I am her carer do I need to inform DWP about this with regards to the carers allowance I receive please?

Many thanks in advance

No, you shouldn’t do as the conditions for receipt of Carers Allowance is identical. But if it makes you feel happier to do so (covering all eventualities - which I fully understand!), then just write to them.
