The Appellant applied for Carer’s Allowance in 2008. The Appellant applied for Carer’s Allowance as he was the carer of his elderly mother, with whom he lived. The Deciding Officer refused the claim on the basis that the Appellant worked outside the home for more than 15 hours per week. The Appellant appealed the decision. He submitted that he worked outside the home for only 13 to 14 hours per week. The Appeals Officer partially allowed the appeal.
