A few weeks ago I told you that I had received forms to complete to claim for Carers Allowance, I had not asked for them but decided to fill them in and send them off.
I received a letter today stating :-
You are entitled to £59. 75p a week Carers Allowance from the 22nd April, 2013.
We cannot pay you from the 22nd April, 2013 because your state pension is more than the Carers Allowance.
So in actual fact I am entitled to it but cannot have it. If I am entitled to it, why can't I have it.
I looked up what 'entitled to' actually meant and it said by law you should get it.
The mind boggles. I am no wiser.
