Hi All Good Evening,
I currently claim ESA in Support group think it is contributions based( was previously on incap and IS) my Husband is my carer and we claim tax credit's as we have one child.
He has been offered a job he cannot turn down , so I will lose my carer and wondered if I can claim for my 17 year old son to do it he is only in college 2 days a week and would this be viable. My care needs are mainly in the night time and in the morning when I get up!
My silly husband called the dole today explaining all this and telling them all our details and the man on the phone first response was and who is going to care for your wife now is that not your main concern!
So I am know very worried, this job means our income will increase by treble so he has to take this!! I am very worried
Sorry if I have made no sense
