I do not have it as it is taken back, so I do nothing. I cannot get the help I need because I do not have it.

I agree it is a problem area with CA being counted as income, which means that they have to count it as income for everyone - working tax payers or not. But in that respect it is no different to most other benefits,The only benefit not treated as income is of course DLA.
At least with CA the Carer Premium does compensate a bit.
If you have rent and council tax benefit you will also loose some of that if someone comes to live with you, it is a set amount if the person is on benefit but more if they are working. The more they earn the more you will loose.
