Carers Allowance (Wales)

Carer's Allowance

Carer’s Allowance is the main benefit for carers.

If you can be paid Carer’s Allowance it is £62.70 a week. The amount paid is reviewed each year in April, but isn’t necessarily increased. If you are getting certain other benefits, including a State Pension, then you may not be able to be paid Carer’s Allowance, although it may still be worth you making a claim - see page 10 for further information.

Carer’s Allowance is not a contributory benefit based on your National Insurance record. Carer’s Allowance is also not a means tested benefit and so is not based on your and any partner’s income and capital. However, there is a cap on how much you can earn from work and still be entitled to Carer’s Allowance - see page 7 for further information.

Carer’s Allowance is taxable. However, carers will only have to pay tax if they have other sources of taxable income such as occupational or personal pensions or part-time earnings, and if this combined income takes them over the threshold for paying tax. Carer’s Allowance on its own is below this threshold

Lwfans Gofalwr

Lwfans Gofalwr yw'r prif fudd-dal i ofalwyr.
 
Adolygir y swm a delir bob blwyddyn ym mis Ebrill, ond nid yw o reidrwydd yn cael ei gynyddu. I gael gwybodaeth am y gyfradd gyfredol, ewch i www.carersuk.org/attendanceallowance
 
Os ydych yn derbyn budd-daliadau eraill penodol, gan gynnwys Pensiwn y Wladwriaeth, mae'n bosibl na fyddwch yn gallu derbyn Lwfans Gofalwr, er efallai ei bod yn werth gwneud cais o hyd - gweler tudalen 8 i 9 i gael gwybodaeth bellach.
 
Nid yw Lwfans Gofalwr yn fudd-dal cyfrannol yn seiliedig ar eich cofnod Yswiriant Gwladol. 
 
Nid yw Lwfans Gofalwr hefyd yn fudd-dal prawf modd yn seiliedig ar eich incwm a'ch cyfalaf chi yn ogystal â rhai eich partner. Fodd bynnag, ceir cap ar faint y gallwch ennill a bod yn gymwys i dderbyn Lwfans Gofalwr o hyd - gweler tudalen 6 i gael gwybodaeth bellach.
 
Trethir Lwfans Gofalwr. Fodd bynnag, bydd rhaid i ofalwyr dalu treth yn unig os oes ganddynt ffynonellau eraill o incwm trethadwy fel pensiynau galwedigaethol neu bersonol neu enillion rhan-amser. Mae Lwfans Gofalwr ar ei ben ei hun o dan y trothwy ar gyfer talu treth.
