    In this THREAD, the OP does state they receive state pension and no other income.

    Then they should both apply for Pension Credit and see whether they are entitled to that.

    As she receives AA, he should apply for Carer's Allowance.

    as above.
    if the mother is getting AA, the son will have an underlying entitlement to carers allowance and may receive additional premiums if he is entitled to pension credit.

    as for the mother giving him money ...
    this isn't a wage, it is a gift and so wouldn't be classed as taxable income and wouldn't need to be declared

    Giving the money as a gift rather than payment for the care he is providing could cause deprivation of assets questions in the future - although if she doesn't have much capital this probably won't matter.

    the attendance allowance is HER income, and would only ever be classed as capiytal if she didn't spend it in the period for wjicj it is paid
