    Carers Allowance

    Good afternoon all.

    I turn 66 on 4th October and have told DWP that I want to claim my pension.

    I get carers allowance for looking after someone.Now I know I can't claim both so I am giving up the carers allowance.DWP have told me that my first payment for my pension will be around the 6th November as it's paid in arrears.What i am wondering is does anyone know if the CA will be paid for the 4 weeks until I get my pension.Will I have to inform DWP or will it flag up on their system?

    I have tried ringing DWP today but I think they had closed for the day or maybe they don't answer the phone anymore.

    Thanks

    My wife's CA stopped one her 66th birthday last year & her pension was paid four weeks later.
    The DWP giveth & the DWP taketh it seems.
