There may be a number of benefits, which you may be entitled to as a carer. If you look after someone who has a disability, chronic illness or is frail, then you are one of Surrey's estimated 100,000 carers. Many people don’t even recognise they are in a caring role!
The person you care for may also be entitled to benefits as well.
The Carer's Allowance is the main benefit for carers. It is not means-tested or based on national insurance contributions. It is worth £55.55 a week.
