The terms for receiving an SDP is that no – one receives CA for caring for them. The SRP will negate the award of CA and so neither of your couple will [b:4714049d64]receive[/b:4714049d64] CA. However they will have an underlying entitlement to CA so would get the Carers Premium x2 in the assessment of their claim. They will also get the SDP (Couple both entitled rate) so they’ll be quids in.

At least that’s how I understand it.

Do I know what I'm doing? The jury's out on that........................
