Extend Invalid Care Allowance to Pensioners

Comment 8th July 2010

Currently, when a carer is in receipt of the State Pension, they lose their exising Invalid Care Allowance. This anomaly is most unfair and has existed for many years. Making ICA available to over 60s or 65s would help in the ongoing battle over disability.

Why does this matter?

Pensioners who continue to be full time carers need the financial support of the country, not to be penalised because they have reached pension age. There are vast number of unpaid carers who save the Government £millions.
