    Hello @Karen62   Pleased to meet you welcome.

    Thank you for your question. I am unsure of an answer. A member of our team or community will know.

    May I suggest speak to CAB. They have a wealth of knowledge, expertise on benefit queries.

    We are a supportive community. Care and share.

    Please have a look at our information and advice may be useful.

    Please take care

    Hi @Karen62 and a very warm welcome to the community. Is the student full time? I found this online:
    This may be an adult or a child. The person claiming Carer's Allowance cannot earn more than £100 per week from other paid work. They also cannot be in full-time education. ... Part-time students who can show they are not expected to study 21 hours a week or more should still be able to claim Carer's Allowance
    Hope this helps :) Please feel free to use the community and have a look around!
