Enhanced rate care pip pension credits

juneandlucy Member Posts: 16 Listener
Hi all, I've just been told on the phone I've been awarded enhanced care component. I've a few questions.

1. As I'm over 65 does that mean my award is 10years as I heard this may be the case but the exact details people are unsure of.

2. I currently get a bit extra pension credits for low mobility DLA as I'm moving now to pip enhanced care do I still get this and if so will it be the same more or less.

3. My son has schizophrenia and lives with me im receiving 32 PW in pension credits for him does affect anything.

Thanks in advance
