Carer's Allowance (CA) is a benefit payable to someone who cares for a disabled person. It's a benefit for people who regularly spend at least 35 hours per week caring for someone who receives a qualifying benefit such as:
The carer must be over 16, not in full-time education and they must not earn more than £116 per week. Carers who are themselves disabled can claim. You can only get one award for Carer's Allowance even if you care for more than one person.
