If you are currently claiming welfare benefits you are likely to be able to continue them. Fostering payments when a child is placed with a foster carer are disregarded when calculating welfare benefits, however, with the benefits system changing it would be advisable to speak to the Department of Work and Pensions about your entitlement to benefits as a foster carer.
