Carer's Allowance

You can get a ‘carer amount included in your universal credit award if you have ‘regular and substantial caring responsibilities’ for a severely disabled person.

To qualify for universal credit, you may need to meet certain work-related conditions, known as requirements. These are recorded in a claimant commitment. If you have ‘regular and substantial caring responsibilities’ for a severely disabled person, none of the requirements will apply to you.
