Carers Allowance entitlement after someone passes away

Can anyone confirm that after the person you care for passes away that you are entitled to carers allowance for 8 weeks after?

Hi Susan,
First of all, my sincerest condolences and I wish you and your family all the best during this difficult time.
You are indeed correct that you can continue to receive carers allowance for 8 more weeks, as long as you continue to meet the age, study, earnings and residence criteria. Additionally, the person you care for must have been entitled to a qualifying disability benefit when they died.
You can report the changes to your situation here:

I hope this helps.
Wishing you all the best
