Carers Pension for my 87 father took 10 weeks. Is this acceptable?

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!

Carers give up their employment, time and sometimes their home to care for a loved one in their own environment. This eleviates the cost to the government on Nursing Care Facilities.

I relocated 370kms from my family and support system and submitted claim Carers Pension 7 weeks ago for 88 year father. Still waiting on it to processed. Savings are nearly depleted. Who cares for the carer?
