Carer's Allowance Fact Sheet

Carer’s Allowance is the main benefit for carers. If you are looking after someone for 35 hours a week or more, you may be eligible.

Carer’s Allowance is not based on your National Insurance record.

It is also not a means tested benefit based on you and your partner’s income and savings.

However, there is a cap on how much you can earn and still be entitled to claim Carer’s Allowance
