Am I eligible for Carer's allowance?
Hi, I posted some months back following my husband's RTA where he was left disabled with multiple broken ribs and a spine fractured in three places. We have today learnt that he is eligible for DLA, both care and mobility at the lower rate. I wonder if anyone could help me as I have been told by someone that I may be entitled to carer's allowance but I thought that my husband had to be receiving the highest rate of DLA for me to be eligible? Is there anything else we might be entitled to. At present we are appealing an ESA decision so are receiving ESA at the appeal rate, child tax credit, child benefit, housing benefit and council tax benefit. Is there anything else we may be entitled to and will it impact on any benefits we already have coming in? Thank you in advance for your time. x
