    How do I sort out an obvious mistake on Carers Allowance?

    I just got a letter from CA today. They have agreed my claim but have deferred payment until May 2013 due to my pension ? I am 41!!!
    I had been receiving Contribution based JSA until Christmas, but claimed CA when my daughters award is DLA came through with middle rate care.
    How do I sort this out???

    This does seem strange. I thought you either qualify for CA or you do not. Perhaps a call will clear up what may be an error.

    Are you getting a works or private pension? If yes, then you are liable for income tax on both the carers allowance and any pension you get.
