    Go to CAB ASAP.

    Pensions should/ might waive the fine if things are properly explained to them. I have even had IR fines dropped on this basis.

    The situation you have does require expert benefits advice. They will show you how to maximise your benefits between you both.

    This reply is based on long experience in dealing with benefits for patients.

    Good luck

    Best
