Maternity and carers allowance

(1 Post)

When I went on maternity leave I got maternity allowance, due to this my carers allowance was suspended till the maternity allowance ended. I'm due to start back to work early so was wondering if after I let the jobcentre (re:maternity allowance) know, will my carers allowance automatically start again?

Seemed really unfair that the carers allowance got suspended even though the amount of caring didn't change but I suppose that's the benefit system for you..
