Not sure if this is right place but if you're reviewing carers allowance on single parent and then go partnered and no longer get parenting pay as partner earns too much will you still receive any carers allowance ??? Anyone know ?

Website was that it was paid in addition to income support payment n maybe if didn't receive income support wouldn't get carers allowance ?

No, you can get carers allowance even if you don't claim any centerlink at all.

You can get it regardless of income. It is paid on top of, not in place of, other Income Support if you receive it. But you still get it whether you earn a little or a lot. And the child keeps the HCC too.
