Am I entitled to Carer's Allowance?
You and the person you care for have to meet certain criteria to make a successful claim for Carer's Allowance. As the carer, you have to be 16 or over, not in full-time education, earn less than £102 a week, and spend 35 hours or more looking after someone. The person you look after must be on certain benefits.
