If you are on AA (Attendance Allowance), and my carer applies for carers allowance, will the DWP deduct money from my AA to make up for the carers allowance?

I cannot answer your question definitively but I found this online.

The short answer is, yes, probably.  But each case is different and depends on a number of factors, so it's not a foregone conclusion, but in my experience it happens more often than not.
