Can I claim carers allowance for myself?
I am claiming PIP on standard rate for daily living and enhanced rate for mobility. We used to claim carers allowance for my husband being my carer but stopped when he started work. I now have various people coming to help me with general thing like cleaning etc. Is it possible for me to claim the carers allowance myself so that I can pay for the help I receive.
