People caring for loved ones with Alzheimer's could get £270 extra a month

2 mins read


People who have just started to look after a neighbour, friend or relative could be completely unaware that they are entitled to claim an extra £67 a week if they spend at least 35 hours a week helping them.

They don’t have to be related, or even live in the same house, as long as they are assisting them with everyday tasks like cooking, cleaning, washing, managing bills and shopping.

And it’s not just people with Alzheimer’s that might have a carer who is entitled to claim the Carer’s Allowance, it could be anyone with a mental health condition or other disability.

The DWP does however ask that certain criteria is met and that the carer has been living in the UK for at least three years and isn’t in full time education.
