carers allowance taken from universal credit.
What's the point in claiming carer's allowance if the dwp stop it from your entitlements.my wife is my carer which she gets £64.30 p/ week for.this is paid for doing OVER 35 hours per week as a carer,£271.00 is then taken off our universal credit.i think this is disgraceful but don't know what can be done.
