CARERS Allowance shortfall.
After Industrial Injury to both heelbones my wife was unable to claim as she too was on ESA at time of my DLA & PIP. After 9 years wife able to claim CA for me after losing her ESA, but paid less than full allowance because I had ESA with extra allowed for carer and supprt group. Now am retired at 65 and ESA replaced with State Pension, wife just gets £ 62 CA, is there a shortfall in her payment or my pension as Now do not get extra for my wife being my carer?
