This is an interesting one.

As I have been caring for years I have not been able to pay extra into a pension scheme like a working friend has.

Can you tell me what extra benefits the government has for people who are unable to do this.

Hi New to this site, I am 73 still working for myself was until Covid cannot claim as my pensions are more than I earn, my husband is bedbound he has rheumatoid spondelitis and he had a stroke 5years ago which took most of his sight, he is a heavy drinker and that takes priority over everythng else which means at the moment I am really struggling for cash I have very little social life as he will not have anyone else in so I never have a holiday a day out and he wants to know when I will be back, sorry to moan I know others are a lot worse ff than me

Thank you Elizabeth

I do get Carers Allowance so looking at the link it says I will automatically get carers credit, I think I checked this a while back so I will get the correct pension.
