Hello. I wonder if anyone can help. I am 53 and on ESA support group and also get DLA. lower rate mobility and middle rate care. I live apart from my partner and part timish carer. As she officially retires jen 6th 2013, we are considering the possibility of living together at my address and would like to.

 

We have tried to get helpful info from benefit advisors on the financial implcations, the dos and donts and pros and cons without a lot of success.

 

I wonder if anybody can help us please? What benfits should we claim and would it be to our detriment money wise. I dont mind losing a little as money isnt the be all etc but i want her to have that independence she deserves after a life of work.

 

oh and hers is the basic state pension if that helps.

 

Many thanks to all for reading and offering good advice.

She might be able to claim carers allowance on top of her pension, worth checking out.

You can't receive carers allowance and a state pension. However, you'll have an underlying entitlement. This could entitle you to some benefits, such as housing and /or council tax benefits.
