Carers allowance confusion?

Hi Guys i wonder if you could help basically,

i earn £590.13 a month, i put £88.52in a pension in which i am allowed 50% of this so £44.26 ( allowed) i worked it out like this.

£590.13 wage

  • £88.52 with 50% = £44.26
    This takes my monthly income to £545.87 x 12 months in a year = £6,550.44 divided by 52 weeks in a year = £125.97

thats £125.97 per week is this correct? its so stressful as i keep getting letters :frowning: :frowning: :frowning: :sick: :unamused: :angry: :mrgreen: :kiss: :smiley:
