Car expenses. - Carers UK Forum

Car expenses.

All about money
As we are classed as too old at 65 ! to get a motability car, we have had to buy our own.
which was expensive having to buy wheelchair converted car. Plus insurance road tax
and maintenance of course! Having to run on a pension. But are people 'Entitled' (sensitive word) :lol:
to any help for running car? at least just to give maybe free road tax.? After all we should be able to have a
normal life as possible.
Hello Moonlight and welcome to the forum :)

You might want to contact the Carers UK Adviceline team to ensure that you are claiming all that you are entitled to - I'm thinking of Attendance Allowance (not means tested and not counted for tax purposes) in particular.

The Adviceline team are the experts in 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.

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.
It's often difficult to get through on the phone as the lines are generally oversubscribed so I usually recommend emailing them in the first instance.
