    Carers income support help

    Hi, i claim carers allowance and the carers element of income support as i care for my mother who is ill, i currently live with her and was considering moving in with my partner who works full time and i was just wondering if my income supprt would be stopped if we moved in together? Getting a newnjob isnt viable the now as i spend over 12 hours a day caring for mum the now, house we r looking at is in the same street so i wont be too far and my dads still in house with her.
    Thanks for help

    yes, you would lose your IS as they would take your partners earnings into consideration, you would still get your carers allowance
