Carer’s Allowance and pension

66Mustang Community Co-Production Group Posts: 5,787 Disability Gamechanger
A family member receives Carer’s Allowance for caring for me. They have a small NHS pension from when they worked as a nurse for a few years. It matures in 3 years, when they are 60, but they have the option of taking it early. If they cashed it in now it would be worth approximately £250 a month. 

Would receiving this pension affect their carer’s allowance?

They have no other income.
