benefit

All about money
hi im new here and was just wondering about benefits, my hubby gets ESA income based and im now carers allowance..would i still get free dental, eye test perscriptions etc, because they seemed to have taken me of his to give me carers allowance
Hi Sue ... welcome to the canteen ... others will be along to express their welcomes.

From the NHS web site :

Income-based benefits

You are automatically entitled to free NHS prescriptions if you’re included in award for:

Income Support
Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
Income-related Employment and Support Allowance

If you’re getting one of these benefits, your partner and any dependent young people under 20 are also entitled to free NHS prescriptions.

Use your award notice as proof that you’re entitled.

You're also entitled to:

free NHS dental treatment
free NHS sight tests
free NHS wigs and fabric supports
help with the cost of glasses or contact lenses
refunds of necessary travel costs to receive NHS treatment



CA , on it's own , is not a gateway BUT your husband's ESA ( Income based ) is ... as confirmed above.
