Help carers increase their state pension
Did you know that National Insurance credits are available to help people fill gaps in their record and may increase the amount of State Pension they get?
Carer’s Credit is for carers of working age who deliver 20 to 35 hours of care a week and don’t get either Carer’s Allowance or Child Benefit for a child under 12. Those eligible for Carer’s Credit may not realise that they are eligible to apply for it.
Help us spread the word to people who might be eligible. All they have to do is visit www.gov.uk/carers-credit and download an application form.
