Gainfully Self Employed On UC adding Carers Allowance

Is this possible I heard they cut your universal credit then add on a carers element not allowance?


An online benefits calculator will reveal under UC … once you crunch the numbers in :

Carers Element. You can get this addition of £160.20 per month if you are caring for a severely disabled person for at least 35 hours a week.

You do not have to claim Carer’s Allowance to get this element.
