    No it wouldn't. Remember that for someone to claim Carers allowance they must look after you for at least 35 hours per week and not earn any more than £132 per week. You must also have a daily living award of PIP. https://www.gov.uk/carers-allowance/eligibility

    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    I realise this may not apply but note too that if the other person who will be caring for you is claiming UC they can simply ask for the carer element to be added to their UC without the need to claim Carer's Allowance itself.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.
