Re: Regarding claiming Carers allowance and Income support for my wife after my PIP got reinstated in Mandatory reconsideration.
My PIP benefit is reinstated and upgraded. I would kindly like to get an advice how I can get my wife's Carers allowance and Income support reinstated and backdated till 4 January 2017. She was getting these before my PIP got stopped on 4 January 2017. Currently I am on ESA WRAG.
1. Which benefits are better off claiming. Is it ESA WRAG with Carers allowance for my myself and my wife or couple claim for Income support with Carers allowance.
2. How to re start the claims for carers allowance and income support. Can we ask for the linking claim rules or not? My wife has to go to the job centre to sign the Income support form again or can we do over phone. Which is the easy way?
When filling carers allowance forms its states that some benefits of the person who is cared for gets affected. Reduced council tax if the local council offers it, a severe disability premium paid with the benefits, extra amount of severe disability paid. It also states that total benefits payments will usually either go up or stay the same.
We pay reduced council tax for 15 pounds a month. We don't want any reduction in this. Our local Council is Coventry.
Your advice is really appreciated.
I look forward to hearing.
Mr I singh
