Quick question about Carers Allowance underlying entitlement

When DWP call carers and tell them their Carers Allowance will stop when they are state pension age, they never seem to let them know about underlying entitlement/carers addition in pension credit.

Can I just check, when a carer gets to SP age, although their CA payments stop (if their SP is higher) the actual claim carries on as underlying entitlement? DWP don’t close the claim entirely right?
