Benefit help needed

Hi all,

My wife has been admitted into a psychiactric hospital after having a severe psychotic breakdown and will probably be there for quite a while.
I know that after 28 days I have to surrender her DLA and also my Carers Allowance, does anybody know how long I can hold her Incapacity Benefit for, I also hold Income Support could I increase this benefit whilst not receiving DLA and Carers Allowance, I would rather speak to my friends than to ask the benefits as they fill your mind with a load of jargon Image
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks Mark.
