Carers allowance and child benefit

Hello,
I’m new to the carer forum. I’ve looked around the forum to see if anyone else has asked this question but I’m yet to see one.

Basically, my wife asked if child benefit affects Carers allowance? I’ve researched and found out that it shouldn’t affect it.

I have emailed the carers advice service, just waiting for response, I thought that O would post on here too to see if anyone else knew.

Thank you for your time. :slight_smile:

Hi and welcome!

Child Benefit and Carers Allowance have no effect at all on each other.
