For 3 years I cared full time for my husband who was terminally ill, which meant I gave up work in March 2010. For those years I received Carers Allowance and Income Support and hubby was on Incap. Benefit and Disability. My husband passed away December 2012, thats when the nightmare started. I was given Bereavement Allowance of £95 A week but they only pay this for 52 weeks. Because of my own failing health, I have fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis I recently claimed ESA. I expected this to be income related. I received a letter today saying I will get £71 ESA contribution based but cannot understand why? Is this right?
