It's not impossible for a Tribunal to be held and the Decision actioned within six months, but there is no way that I can guarantee it.

In effect, the tribunal remakes the original decision. Therefore payments will also be backdated to this point.

Carers Allowance is a separate benefit so you will have to apply for it, see
