Hi I am just having another whinge. I recently applied for carers allowance as Mum has had attendance allowance for the last 18 months and although she doesn't live with us we spend a lot of our time with her and without her sorting out her life as well as ours. I duly received a letter confirming the vast amount of £44 allowance and have now found that Mum has had almost the same amount stopped from her severe disablement premium. This seems very unfair as the government to give me an allowance have stumped up an extra £3 a week. This must be all I am worth to them as a carer. No wonder people don't bother claiming. Now I find that I will have to have her finances reassessed because her present assessment on which she is charged for careworkers is based on her getting the extra disablement money. I am beginning to wish I hadn't bothered.
