People on Carer’s Allowance could see payments stop if they holiday abroad this year

Reading now: 544

Nearly one million people across Great Britain, including 83,903 living in Scotland are currently receiving £81.90 each week in Carer’s Allowance.

However, many of those claimants may not be aware of several changes in circumstances that must be reported to the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), or risk losing their benefit entitlement.

These changes include starting a job, entering or leaving full-time education, earning more than £151 per week, not providing 35 hours of weekly care, or the person they care for goes into hospital, into a care home or takes a holiday.

However, many unpaid carers may be unaware that going abroad on holiday for a period of more than four weeks during a six-month period (26 weeks), may affect benefit entitlement.
