There are new rules to help carers who are missing out on National Insurance Contributions. You could benefit if you are in one of these situations:
The Government has introduced a new Carer’s Credit to help carers in these situations. To claim it you need to be caring for one or more disabled person for a total of 20 hours or more a week where they get Attendance Allowance, Constant Attendance Allowance or the middle or highest rate of Disability Living Allowance care component; or you will need a medical or care professional to confirm that you are providing appropriate care for them.
If you think this might be you, you can contact the Carer’s Allowance Unit on 0845 608 4321 or Textphone on 0845 604 5312.
