What is Carer's Allowance?
Carer’s Allowance is a benefit paid to people who are earning less than £123 a week and spend at least 35 hours a week looking after someone with a disability. You could be entitled to £66.15 a week (that’s £3,400 a year!), and it can be backdated up to 3 months.
So how can Mobilise help me?
Mobilise has created a free and easy Carer’s Allowance checker that takes you just a few minutes. You’ll quickly find out what support you could receive and, even better, how to actually claim it.
“Mobilise’s checker was so quick and easy - it made me feel heard and I’ve been able to access more help that I didn’t know I was eligible for. Everyone should take 5 minutes to do this”
“I finally understand what I am eligible for - I can’t believe it was free and so easy. Thank you Mobilise.”

Carer's Allowance doesn't need to be complicated
Claiming Carer's Allowance is easier and quicker than you think. It's one of the shortest forms to complete. Just a few things to check before you complete it. Many people don’t claim Carer’s Allowance because the process can seem quite intimidating, so the payment isn’t worth the hassle.
Mobilise changes all this. We make it easy and clear for you, with simple questions and friendly help on hand. £3,400 a year can make a real, positive impact on you and your caring situation - and even if you don’t qualify, we can then help you find out if you’re eligible for other support too.
Even if you don’t qualify for Carer's Allowance there might be other support available to you, which our checker will also look for. For example:
Carer's Credits - these fill in gaps in your National Insurance contributions if you are not working. This is important if you need to claim other benefits in the future, such as a state pension.
A direct payment of up to £500 per year from your Local Council to help you manage the impact of caring (this amount varies depending on your council, but we can help you find out).
