carers allowance

Share information, support and advice on all aspects of caring.
why oh why is it that i retired and had my carers allowance stopped by the dwp i have spoken to the many time and had no luck getting a answer even though i retired i still care for my wife and it seems because i get the full amount of my state pension i am not entitled to it as my wife is on pip can she claim for the carers allowance as advice is not given by the dwp any advice would be great

The government describe CA as an "income substitute" benefit, so is the Pension.
Their rules say you can't have both. The rule needs changing.
