Help regarding ESA

All about money
Hi,

I need some advice. I am currently signed off sick from work with depression and I'm a 2nd carer for my mum who suffers with MS. My dad is her main carer and gets carers allowance.

Are there any benefits or financial help I can receive. Also my husbands currently receives ESA due to his ill health.

Sorry to bother folk I'm in such a state don't know which way to turn

Hi cennin
If you are your husbands main carer you may qualify for carers allowance, but I know that the rules have changed with the change to ESA, so I think your best bet is to check up with CAB, or send an e-mail to carersUK help-line.
Benefits are a mine-field at the moment.
