Need help State Pension in 2 weeks
I am due my State Pension on 6th March. I have not been able to get any help or advice from the Pension Department. At the moment I'm on ESA, my husband is on my claim (he doesn't appear on any breakdown of figures but they say he is on my claim) and we get Severe Disability Premium. My husband gets standard rate care PIP and I get enhanced care and mobility. I have filled in a paper application for my Pension and I have been advised to claim Pension Credit. I have also been told that there is a Severe Disability Payment with Pension Credit but I don't know how to go about claiming that. I have been trying to find out what I need to do for several weeks and I am worried that when ESA and the Severe Disability Payment will stop on 6th March our Housingand Council Tax Benefits will also stop. There will be nothing coming in but we will have to pay full rent and Council Tax. Can anyone advise me what to do, I am so worried.
