    If you are asking will I get extra PIP because I now have a career.As far as I know the two benefits are not linked so if you have been given awarded cares allowance you will not get an increased PIP allowance unless it a change in circumstances and you will have to fill in a new claim form and most likely have another face to face acessment.

    Nope. PIP is assessed entirely on matching the descriptors to the impact caused by your condition. Carers can claim their own benefit for looking after you.
    It wouldn't be fair in any event for those who don't have a carer if what you suggest is correct.
