Furthermore, it’s important to be aware that tax may need to be paid on it, if the claimant’s income exceeds the Personal Allowance.
To claim Carer’s Allowance, the person doesn’t need to be related to or live with the person they care for.
However, it’s not possible to get paid extra if care is provided for more than one person.
Additionally, if another person also cares for the same person, it’s important to be aware that only one person can claim Carer’s Allowance.
