In response to George's question - yes, the criteria for the Carer's Credit are different from Carer's Allowance, which means that the Credit can be claimed if you are caring for over 20 hours a week, rather than 35. The full conditions are at http://www.carersuk.org/Information/Car ... ersCredits

John - the Carer's Credit only affects the State Pension as it is a credit for National Insurance contributions, so it won't have any affect on your private one. Butyes, if you get Income Support as a carer you will automatically qualify for the Credit. However we'd still recommend getting that State Pensions forecast so they can check out how your State Pension is looking and give any advice on how to improve it.
