If my husband goes for ESA while waiting for PIP decision can I claim CA or would it affect his ESA?
Hi all after some advice about benifits. My husband is due home about the 8th March, I have been told by the medical team at the rehabilitation centre that he can't be left on his own due to him having blance issues and he has impaired vision in 1 eye he can only walk with a frame at a very slow pace this is because he has had a bad bleed on the brain. I have decided to go down to 2 days a week at work. Brain at present get SSP but not sure for how long as if they no he wont be returning . We will of course be going for pip from what the OT said today hexwont have any trouble getting that, at present he can't be left unattended can't be aloud to cook a hot meal or even make a hot drink. An6 my question is if brian goes for ESA while waiting for the pip decision can I claim carers allowance or would it affect his ESA benefit, I am aware that pip won't be effected, I 2ill be earning just under the £128 . Also should I make the claim for pip as soon as he comes out of hospital, he has been in hospital for 14 weeks. Any advice would be much appreciated as me nor my husband no anything about the benifits system
