I have had a quick look through on the forums and I can't seem to find a discussion on carer's allowance. Sorry if I'm asking questions that have been answered elsewhere!
I applied for carer's allowance last week on the .Gov website. It was a relatively easy process compared to the other benefits I've had to apply for, for my Mum. The website stated they would be in contact with me within the next four weeks as to whether I am eligible or not (I hope I am, in a full time love in carer, 24/7 without aid).
Either way, what I'm asking is has anyone else dealt with Carer's allowance here? Does it actually take the four weeks, or longer? I only ask because sometimes, the waiting times they give aren't necessarily adhered to!
Obviously I don't expect to have heard from them just yet, but wanted to get an early view on the sitcho! One less thing to worry about
Thank you so much for reading and to anyone who gets back! Hope you're all well and having a great day! X
