Our new vision
If you are caring for someone with a disability - whether a partner, relative, friend, or neighbour - for at least 35 hours a week you might be able to claim Carer's Allowance. If you are under pension age‚ you will also get National Insurance credits each week towards your pension. You must earn no more than £110 a week (after the deduction of allowable expenses such as Income Tax) and the person you care for must receive the higher or middle-rate care component of Disability Living Allowance, either rate of Personal Independence Payment daily living component, or any rate of Attendance Allowance.
To find out whether you are eligible for Carer's Allowance, and how you can make a claim, look at our factsheets and guides below.
