There may be a number of benefits, which you could be entitled to as a carer. The person you care for may also be entitled to benefits.
- Your local Citizens Advice provides free, confidential and professional advice, including a benefits check service. This useful booklet helps you understand your welfare benefits entitlement.
- The Carers UK benefits calculator can also help you find out about benefits and entitlements.
- If you are looking after the finances of the person you care for, you may also want to explore legal issues like power of attorney. For more information on managing someone else's affairs visit the Citizens Advice website.
- You can also look at our support for carers web section for helpful support and guidance.
