Hi everyone, new here.
I've recently lost my wife and now i feel like im stood in the middle of a mine field,I was getting carers allowance for her. My wife was the main claimant for the old style esa and she claimed for me as her husband. 
She was disabled. I am also disabled. 
I tried to make a claim for new style esa and was told no. I thought whilst on carers allowance your N.I was paid for you the same as a job.
I've now had to claim UC.. they paid me a whopping £28 for the period of a month. 
I received a letter from the Carers allowance people offering there condolences and said they will continue to pay carers till
1st of the 1, 2024
I'm so confused at all this whilst suffering with the loss of my wife. I just don't want to get out of bed at all.. 
Any help and advice would be great please.
Thank you
