Hi i am a carer for my daughter and spend over 35hrs weekly caring she lives on her own in a flat she is mentally impaired she claims pip allowace middle rate . My self and my wife are both on state pension therefore not entitled to carers allowance but have an underlying entitlement . When i rang DWP recently the person on the phone told me i wouldnt recieve the carers premuim because i wasent on pension credit please can one of the experts on this forum clear this up for me as im a bit confused as to my rights
