Hi peoples,
Does anyone know how much we would be able to get if my husband gives up work to care for me please?

    For your husband to be able to claim carers allowance then you must be claiming either one of these benefits. PIP daily living, DLA mid/high rate care or attendance allowance. If you don't claim any of those then he won't be able to claim carers allowance.

    For any other benefits advice then it's impossible to advise with no information. I'd advise you to make an appointment with your local advice agency for a full benefits check because it's impossible to give this sort of advice on an internet forum.
