At present I get higher mobility/lower care components. I have rheumatoid arthritis-for approx 16 years, I suffer from depression & panic attacks, also diagnosed with Fibromyalgia about 2 years ago & now COPD. I am petrified of changing from DLA to PIP because I know that ATOS are turning down so many claims, so many people are commiting suicide, etc. My hubby who is also my carer at present gets WRAG benefit that will stop in November (he has an appeal in), would it be better for me to try for higher care allowance & he to claim carers allowance? I'm so upset & worried about all of this that it is making my depression worse & I'm suffering more panic attacks, this applies to my husband too.
