Is my works pension classed as income in a carers allowance claim ?
After a difficult few months I am now having to re-apply to get carers allowance again after my wife's PIP was stopped and has now been reinstated. I was made redundant 12 years ago so I took out an early works pension which is paid to me monthly. I do not have a state pension. The online claim form is now asking if I have any 'other income', but the last claim I made never asked me about this, only if I was in employment or not. Can you please tell me if my works pension is classed as an income by the DWP, and if it will effect my carers allowance claim ?
Thanks in advance
