More hours and work - can I put it in a pension?

Hi. I have been asked to do more hours at work but it will take me over the limit for carers allowance - but not enough to be better off. Something I had been thinking about before this came about was a pension, so, it seems sensible to take the hours and use the money for a pension.

Over the next few years this is a job where the hours will grow and I could end up full time and in a good position and I will (at the right time) then not claim carers, but at the moment, that doesn't make sense for us. 

 I wondered how much you can earn to put into a pension, without losing carers allowance? How is it worked out?
