    What specific information do you need? 

    See the government page on it here:
    And Citizen’s Advice too:

    If you need anything further, please do come back and ask and a member will help you the best they can.

    Hi and thank you. I'm mainly looking for any benefits I can obtain whilst I'm working and receiving Carers allowance. I earn to much to receive universal credit and no one I've spoke to takes carers allowance into account as a low income. If there's anything else that you think might help me please let me know. In the mean time I will look at citizens advice.

    The only other benefit is council tax reduction if you're responsible for paying the bill. Universal Credit has replaced all the old legacy benefits so there's nothing else you can claim unfortunately.
    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.
