Knowing your rights & benefits

Knowing your rights & benefits

One of our members forwarded us an interesting article which Carers' UK has published about carers' rights and benefits, which we thought you might find of interest. You can download the document from our website at or you can visit the Carer's UK website at

Re the above, my husband is in receipt of Attendance Allowance and I am his sole carer. I applied for the Carer's Allowance because, as I understood it from the literature from Carer's UK, it is not means tested. It was not granted because I am in receipt of a reduced State Pension and one is not allowed to receive more than one state benefit unless your income is below a certain level. Carer's Allowance IS therefore means tested despite what the Carer's Uk literature states.
