Hi have been on DLA and then PIP and income related ESA in support group long term , On my 60th birthday a pension award following divorce years ago became payable to me, I wrote with proof to DWP and as a result of this i have been changed onto contribution ESA only with deductions ( was previously entitled to both income and contribution esa) from the pension. What i do not understand is I have to pay more towards my rent as HB allowance is reduced, but council tax now where as before i got full CT support but they say it is due to disability premiums ..My question is which of the disability premiums should i get now , as before am sure i got all 3 levels and nothing has changed apart from the private pension coming into pay ? thank you
