I am in the Support Group of ESA CB, a friend of mine who has just retired and who now claims Private and State Pension wants to become my Carer as I now need lots of assistance, I believe that if he is successful in claiming then he will not face any financial penalties but could I be affected, I am currently receiving approx £126 per week which is made up of ESA and a Disability Payment, I am also claiming a 1 band reduction in my Council Tax and getting DLA of HRM and MRC, is it worth my pal claiming or is it too difficult to do so, many thanks for your help from Russell
