My partner recieves DLA in the highest rate for care and mobility and is currently in the appeals process for ESA after recieving 0 points at the medical. She also recieved Income Support until recently when the ESA people cancelled in it light of the medical results.
I recieve Carer's Allowance and have recently been informed I am entitled to Income Support. What I want to know is can I apply for Income Support and add my partner onto my claim and just cancel the ESA appeal. I've worked it out and we would get basically the same amount of benefits either way but it just seems like less hassle being on Income Support rather than ESA.
Neither of us work either by the way.
Any advice would be appreciated.
