    They're supposed to send them 3 months before the end date. You will need to ring them first thing Monday morning, it's possible that the forms were sent and you didn't receive them. His award will end on that date.



    Have you changed address and didn't update the details with DWP?

    It may even be longer than 3 months before the end date that you should have received the renewal pack. You do need to ring DLA first thing Monday morning. With the end date now past he next payment could be the last and if you're claiming Carers Allowance this will end 4 weeks after the DLA stops. Any extra tax credits you may receive will also stop. If you claim Income Support because of the Carers Allowance then that will also stop, unless you have a child under 5. If your area is a full universal credit area then it will be this you'll have to claim. Hopefully, for you they may have just not sent the forms but this seems highly unlikely. Good luck.
