I am looking to make a claim for carer allowance, having had to retire at 63 and to move back home to care for elderly ill parents. My company pension is not included in the rules for carer allowance.
However, rental “earned income” is and there are questions about it in the form. Having googled various sites, as usual, it seems there is no direct clarification from the DWP, and it is a decision maker’s right to make the call. From what I have read if my properties were in a Ltd company then they would be regarded as earned income as their rents exceed £110 in total pw I could not claim the allowance (they are not in a Ltd company, they are just mortgage free and held by me).
As they are held by me alone then my understanding is that the rents are regarded as investment income, which is not included for carer allowance purposes. Anyone on here been in the same boat?
If anyone is questioning why I would even claim the allowance it is because I will not receive a state pension until age 66 but if I am awarded the allowance the “stamp” continues to be paid for me up until age 66. Having worked full time for 47 years and paid the full amount of NIC “stamp” I am not inclined to forego some of the state pension.
