#1 Diana’s PIP has been approved

Post by Paul Barker »

Without us having to reapply with the help of an agency. I only know because a backdated sum has hit the bank. I’ll know the monthly amount going forward when a full month goes in. Its a huge relief.

Yes, thank you? I could have always had it as I registered as her carer 2010 when she first went into a coma and came back not knowing our wedding or honeymoon. . It just suited me to work instead. Yes I’ll get that changed. Probably by phoning the local council as thats where I had to register.

Yep, just be aware of the trap if you start earning again while receiving it.

Great news Paul. Hope it boosts your morale and strengthens your carer’s resolve.

Good news Paul. I know how difficult it can be to jump through all their hoops having applied in the past for a previous partner’s child.

I get more than £81 state pension so “you will not get any carers allowance”

So that wont be claimed and as before its better to work.

Ah, so I could claim pension tax credits if I don’t work. I probably will.
