If your circumstances change
You must report any change in your circumstances if you’re claiming or have applied for Carer’s Allowance.
This includes if you get a job, take a break from caring for someone or stop being a carer altogether.
Credits help to fill in any gaps in your National Insurance record. This can mean that you’ll still get the full State Pension and other benefits. These credits generally stop:
- in the tax year you reach State Pension age
- if you get the underlying entitlement and Widow’s Benefit or Bereavement Benefit
