Carers allowance

Rose1rose2 Member Posts: 4 Listener
Hi Everyone, I'm new to the group, I was told I couldn't claim carers allowance because both my ,able bodied, husband and I have a state pensions but are not entitled to pension credits so therefore not entitled to carers allowance but I should still apply for carers allowance because just applying means we are entitled to hidden benefits. I was wandering if anyone else has experienced this anomaly. Kind Regards to everyone.
