Temporary work contract

For information and discussion about benefits
Hi

I'm hoping someone can help me with this. I receive PIP and my husband carers allowance.
He has been offered some temporary work, but not sure if this will be days or weeks yet.
I understand he will need to contact the benefits office - I was just wondering if my husband takes the job will he be able to reinstate the carers allowance once the job is finished?
He will still be caring for me for over 35 hours a week.

Many thanks
Hello Julie,
I understand he will need to contact the benefits office - I was just wondering if my husband takes the job will he be able to reinstate the carers allowance once the job is finished?
I'm pretty sure the answer to your question is "yes" - but I'd still suggest that you contact the Carers UK Adviceline team as they are the experts on all matters related to caring and benefits.
Need expert advice? You can talk to the Carers UK Adviceline five days a week, no matter where you are in the UK or how complex your query is. We do benefits checks and advise on financial and practical matters related to caring.

Freephone: 0808 808 7777
email: advice@carersuk.org
Open Monday to Friday, 10am to 4pm

The Carers UK Adviceline also includes a listening service, there for you to talk through your caring situation with a trained volunteer who understands what you are going through. Available Mondays and Tuesdays, from 9am to 7pm.
If you can’t get through on the phones (lines are often oversubscribed) then send them an email, they’ll usually get back to you within 3-5 working days.

Also have a read of the Carers UK factsheet on Carers Allowance here:

which gives the details on how much he could earn before CA is affected.
Many thanks for your reply Susie , much appreciated
