Carer's Credit

Carer's Credit

You could get Carer's Credit if you care for someone for more than 20 hours per week. If you’re eligible, you can get credits to help fill gaps in your National Insurance record.

This means you can take on caring responsibilities without affecting your ability to qualify for the State Pension.

You don’t need to apply for Carer’s Credit if you:

  • get Carer’s Allowance - you’ll automatically get credits
  • get Child Benefit for a child under the age of 12 - you’ll automatically get credits

Please visit the Carer's Credit page on the website for further information.
