What is Carers Allowance
Carers Allowance is financial aid you can claim if you care for someone. To see if you are eligible, call the Carers Allowance contact number. To claim, you do not have to be related or live with the person you care for, you just need to be aged 16 or over and spend 35 hours a week caring for them. The allowance is £59.75 a week, but it is taxable and could affect your other benefits. You may not get it if you are in full time education or you earn more than £100 a week (after tax). There are two ways to apply for Carers Allowance. You can apply online or by post. It takes four to six weeks to process your claim and if someone else looks after the same person, only one person is allowed to claim it. If you were entitled before you claimed, you can ask for your allowance to be backdated for up to three months.
