What should we claim now.... 6 years 10 months ago #14521

Both my wife and I receive DLA, mine higher on both elements and my wife lower mobility and higher care, apart from both getting carers for each other what other benefits would we be entitled to, we are currently in receipt of Income support.

As an alternative you could try the Benefits Enquiry Line (BEL).

Leaving aside the heavy stuff, DLA will get you into a lot of venues like theatres/concerts etc. two for one, and if you've got higher rate mobility, you can easily get a free bus pass and have lots of days out for free. Don't forget the CEA card - two for one in the cinema.
