    I would say this wasa change of circumstances so yes you should let them know.

      Not sure.

      The thing is you should tell them anyway.

      Otherwise later on they may find out and ask why you did not tell them

      This would be more likely to affect his dla than if you were straight with them from the beginning.

      I know it is time consuming and annoying now but that is how it is.

      Good luck with all this. All the best

    Hi Leona,

    Any changes that would affect his DLA, especially the Care Component need to be reported to the DWP. They make affect how much you are entitled to, in which case they will ask you for dates when the changes took place.

    Regards,

    Les.

      Just rang them up, told them that he stayed at his dad's 3 nights a week but his care hasn't changed in any way.. As long as I'm primary carer it doesn't change.
