Carer’s Allowance is a benefit for people who can’t work full-time because they are caring for a severely disabled person.
Carer’s Credit is a National Insurance credit. It helps to protect carers’ basic State Pension and State Second Pension by making sure there are no gaps in carers’ National Insurance record.
