    You can’t normally get 2 income-replacement benefits (eg Carer’s Allowance and the State Pension) paid together. This is called the ‘overlapping benefit rule’. If you can’t be paid Carer’s Allowance because of this rule, you have ‘underlying entitlement’ to Carer’s Allowance instead. This might mean you could get: . the carer premiums in Jobseeker’s Allowance and Income Support . the extra amount for carers in Pension Credit
