Carers allowance & pension??

For information and discussion about benefits
Hi
I joined your group as I have been my husbands carer , who has been officially diagnosed with Dementia.
My question is, will my retired NHS pension of £500. Per month effect my application of carers allowance?
Sorry this is so to the
Point.
Thank you in advance
Hello June and welcome to the forum.

Your private NHS Pension won't affect your claiming Carers Allowance but your STATE pension will. Have a read of the Carers UK fact sheet on CA here:

Hi June, welcome to the forum.
Did you know that dementia sufferers are EXEMPT from Council Tax?
Make sure he has a Needs Assessment from Social Services, and you have a Carers Assessment.
