I have been on "Benefits for the last 13 years due to permanent disability.

My question is this? I receive income support and pip! Should I be getting further support? Oh and I get CTB and HB

    I'm assuming your partner claims carers allowance for looking after you, which is the reason why you're claiming Income Support?

    Best thing you can do is pop all your details into a benefits calculator or visit your local CAB for a full benefits check. However, you could possibly be claiming all you can claim but i can't confirm that without knowing all of your exactly details, which isn't possible on an internet forum.

    Hello @simon1234bunny and welcome to the community. :)

    It would depend on your individual circumstances so popping your details into a benefit calculator like Poppy has suggested is probably your best option.
