    Then you need to contact the relevant benefit departments and ask the question.

    Apologies - missed that poppy has already provided that link.

    (I suspect it will still only return, at best, a result that says you might be able to claim.)
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.
