Carers Allowance

Share information, support and advice on all aspects of caring.
I can not understand why this can not be paid to qualifying individuals and where the individuals earns to much recover the difference via the taxation system. With an option to cease the allowance if the build up of tax worries the individual.

In the case of carers doing variable work we have to register then deregister and then register again etc.

There has to be an easier way and anyway if you are still doing the minimum hours required why does it matter what you earn you are still a carer and as such if the goverment is on our behalf going to give this (reward?) all qualifying carers should get it.
I think George summed it up in another thread and I quote:

"the whole system is a cock up and run by nutters ........ " Image
