You are correct in saying that some IB benefit will stop when you get your pension, the pension dept and benefits dept are two separate entities so as far as I know they will not send you a breakdown of other benefits you may be entitled to.

 

 

Have you had your award letter yet? this is the letter that gives you a breakdown of your pension entitlement, if not you need to contact them now, if/when you know how much pension you will get you can put everything into a benefit calculator this should give you the answers you want.

 

 

Bear in mind a couple of things, the state pension is paid in arrears, so if you choose to get it monthly it will be paid 1 month in arrears, weekly a week in arrears , fortnightly, two weeks in arrears.

 

 

Also the SP is taxable income so will be added to other taxable income like private pension, any wages and certain taxable benefits.

 

 

I would suggest you contact age uk who have brilliant benefit advisors

Employment n support allowance will be replaced by state retirement pension, and if necessary, pension credit.

 

For now you can stay in receipt of disability living if your care needs don't change. Any change and dependent on where you live, you may be invited to claim a personal independence payment. Which will happen sooner or later anyway cos you didn't turn 65 before April 2013.

 

DLA or PIP, your wife can continue to claim carers until she reaches her state pension age.
