New carer, does this affect my daughter's ESA?
Hi everyone. Can anyone let me know if they have had this problem. I was caring for my disabled daughter for many many years. I am now disabled myself and unable to care for her. My other daughter is now registered as her new carer. Does that affect my daughter's ESA payment? She was due her 2 weekly payment which is always in my account on the Saturday, always. I do intend to call DWP in the morning but it is very worrying as I know that these problems can sometime take a long time to sort out. I am no longer on IS and have my appointment in 2 days. My younger daughter, the carer, gets her first payment in January so I cannot imagine when I will get my first payment. It's going to be a very dreary Christmas for us as we only have 2 ESA and 1 PIP payment coming into the household. That's my disabled daughter's money and it has to support 3 of us. I know there will be back payments etc but why does it always have to be a crap Christmas?
