FORUM: Countdown for Carers

It is starting to look as if April 1 is going to be an important watershed for those who care for an elderly friend or relative. The Government is tightening up the rules that currently allow a carer to back date claims for state help. At present, a carer can back date a claim for state help for up to 12 months. From April 1, however, the maximum any claim can be back dated becomes 3 months. While the Government envisages that this will save £55m a year, the prospects for carers themselves appear to be less rosy.
