    Hi,
    You can't claim Carers Allowance for yourself, someone else can claim for looking after you for at least 35 hours per week but it would be their money and not yours.

    Do you have a PIP daily living award? Do you claim an Income Related benefit like ESA, JSA or Income support. If so and you live alone or classed as living alone then you could claim Severe Disability premium (SDP)
