Have signed up, will they really listen? Why do they think when you get your pension you cease to be a carer? it just doesn't seem logical to me. Apparently I'm allowed to earn £95 per week but not allowed to receive a pension of £42 per week. The fact that I can't earn the £95 as I'm a carer doesn't seem to count. I just don't know anymore!!
Signed!
Carol, the benefits system is full of logic gaps.

Partly it's because it's almost 100 years old, a patchwork quilt with bits added here, taken away there. Nobody truly understands the whole thing.

Partly it's because governments make stupid decisions. You can get Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance if you're 64 and 364 days old, but the moment you turn 65 your legs drop off like everybody else so there's no equivalent component to Attendance Allowance. Image
