Carer's Allowance

[ˈkeərəz əˈlaʊəns]



Carer's Allowance gives a weekly benefit of £76.75 for the 2023/24 tax year to qualifying individuals who care for someone else for at least 35 hours a week.

More detail:

Carer's Allowance is a financial benefit provided by the UK government to people who spend a significant amount of time caring for someone else. It is intended to help carers with the additional costs and expenses associated with their caring responsibilities.

The carer must be at least 16 years old and spend at least 35 hours a week caring for someone, and not earning more than a certain amount each week. The person being cared for must also receive certain disability benefits but does not have to be a family member.

The weekly rate of Carer's Allowance is £76.75 for the 2023/24 Tax Year. The allowance counts towards your total Taxable Income so will be taxed if your Taxable Income is above your Personal Allowance.
