Carer's Allowance

To find out if you are eligible or to make a claim visit the Government website. www.gov.uk/carers-allowance

You can also make a claim digitally from this site. www.carersallowance.service.gov.uk/allowance/benefits

The website is:

  • simpler - there are fewer questions than the paper claim form and there is no password or signature needed. It works equally well on pc, tablet and mobile and is available every hour of every day.
  • clearer - customers are only asked questions that relate to their circumstances.
  • faster - on average it takes around 23 minutes to complete with no postal delays.

You can still request a paper copy or discuss any of your queries
