If your partner has no earnings from employment or self-employment you should answer ‘No’ to this question.
If your partner is in paid work they might still be able to get Carer's Allowance but your partner must not earn more than £128 in take home pay each week. Certain expenses can be deducted from this, for example childcare costs.
The following count as earnings: statutory sick pay; statutory maternity pay; statutory adoption, paternity or shared parental pay. If your partner receives contractual payments from their employer for sickness, maternity, adoption, paternity and shared parental leave, these also count as earnings.
It does not matter if your partner has savings as these will not be taken into account.
Your partner does not have to have paid any national insurance contributions to get Carer's Allowance. If your partner earns more than £128 in take home pay each week and your partner is entitled to Universal Credit your partner may still be able to receive a carer’s element within their award.
