  9. I would like some urgent help to my dilemma. on the 3rd of september I closed my claim for Income support due to my age 60 and having claimed pension credit prior to 14 th may thought everything would go smoothly however things have not. it's the 23rd today and so far I have not received a penny of PC. Now I am told that I will receive £132.60p I asked why I will not get the carers premium of £30.05 added as an additional amount as stated on the direct gov website. They said because your carer receives it. My carer who is actually my 21 year old son receives £53.90p Carers Allowance and income support of £28.00p. When we phoned today they told him that he gets carers premium as well, which he said surely I have never received that, as I never knew I could claim it, they said it is added as you can't get income support or carers allowance without it, then they said that they add it all up and deduct it all from what the law says he needs to live on meaning that he only gets £81.90 per week and that is his entitlement. When he said that he wishes to cease receiveing the carers premium they told him then that he wouldnt get anything at all as it was the carers premium that qualified him for the income support payment. This also means I can not get the £30.05 carers premium either is this right? As it seems the £30.05p carers premium has not been paid to him since march 2008 when he first claimed carers allowance. My son now thinks he should be given the payments he has not received as a solicitor has suggested that he was entitled to receive the £30.05p carers allowance on top of his £81.90p that the law says he is allowed to live on, he is now almost certain they have cheated him out of over £3800 pounds in carers premium. What can we do about this? Can someone offer some realistic and factual advice. So far the benefits system has been hell for me in fact my carer, estranged wife and youngest son found me trying to commit suicide last friday and obviously prevented it, My GP wanted to hospitalise me but my CMHT said that was not appropriate. Surely disabled people should be treated better than this. I still do not have a date when I will receive any money and now only have my DLA of £267 pounds per month to provide for myself and the council has stopped my council tax and housing benefit.
