In order for you to claim Carer’s Allowance, you must earn at least £123 a week or more in 2019/2010. This may include income from employment or self-employment, such as having a part-time job. However, it is important to understand that if you are receiving money from a private occupational pension, this will not be considered as earnings. If you are already claiming Carer’s Allowance, or meet the eligibility criteria for it, then there is no need to actively apply for Carer’s Premium yourself. It will be automatically by the relevant government department.

In order to apply for Carer’s Allowance, you will need to ensure you can provide certain information about you and the person you are caring for.

To claim for Carer’s Allowance you will need to provide information on the following:

  • The details of the benefits you are already receiving
  • The benefits the person your caring for is receiving
  • National Insurance numbers
  • Personal details, such as date of birth and addresses
  • Time spent in employment, education and abroad
  • Bank or building society details
