I recently transferred from DLA to PIP. On my award letter it stated that any carer's allowance in payment wouldn't be affected by the change.

 

However, as you can guess there is a glitch in the DWP system which meant that son's carer's allowance was stopped without warning.

 

 

Easy enough to resolve with a phone call, but for anyone transferring it's as well to be aware that there could be a problem.

 

 

In son's case as this happened over Xmas it was actually 3 weeks before he realised and in the meantime had incurred £54 in bank charges which DWP have agreed to refund.

It took 6 months and the involvement of the Independent Case Examiner to make DWP actually repay the bank charges, but son got an extra £75 for the hassle on top.
