    Hi Leah,

    Rules around benefits can be confusing. Carer's premiums/additions can be added to or taken into account for:

    • Income Support

    • income-based Job-seeker's Allowance

    • Housing Benefit (England, Wales, Scotland)  / Housing Benefit (Northern Ireland)

    • Council Tax Support

    • Pension Credit

    • Universal Credit


    I would suggest that you seek some advice from a Benefits Specialist at CAB, Turn2US or entitled to
