Money and Benefits

Researching and getting access to all the benefits that you as a carer and the person you're caring for are entitled to, whether financial or non-financial, can be a confusing and frustrating process.

Here we aim to take some of the jargon out of the main benefits you may be entitled to and try to make the steps to claiming as clear as possible. And if you can't find the information you're looking for here, or for a more detailed run-down of all the benefits you may be able to claim, visit the Carers UK benefits section here.

We have divided the Benefits section into the following areas, making it easier for you to access the key information:

Carer's Assessment

Carer's Allowance

Disability Living Allowance/Attendance Allowance

Housing/Council Tax Benefits

Income Support and Tax Credits
