How much carer's allowance do I get?

Carer's Allowance

The rate is £69.70 per week (from 11 April 2022).

Carer’s allowance can continue to be paid for up to 8 weeks after the person you care for has died.

Carer’s allowance is not means tested, which means it is not affected by your income or savings (although there is an earnings limit). It is taxable. Any savings you have do not affect your carer’s allowance.

Additional payments in Scotland

In Scotland, you will also receive a ‘carer’s allowance supplement’ of £237.90 every six months from the Scottish government. 

Carer’s allowance supplement is disregarded when working out universal credit, pre-universal credit means-tested benefits, and tax credits.
