Thanks for getting back to me.
The order was made January 31st 2008. That was before the retirement age for women was increased to 65 wasn't it?
My son is receiving the middle rate of care component for Disability Living Allowance which is £51.85 and he is on the lower rate of mobility which is £20.55.
Because he has left education and is not able to work, I have applied for ESA for him. However, I don't know if he will qualify under the new regulations, so thats an unknown as yet.
Yes, he is still paying maintenance for Daniel. That is supposed to end when he reaches 21. (16/01.2016)
My ex-husband is the managing director of his own print brokering business.
My ex is a couple of years younger than I am so he's 55.
I can't imagine that he would want to retire early.
I do have a private pension Claire. I just don't want to eat into it until my government pension kicks in. I found out recently that I cannot continue to claim carers allowance once I'm 65. It's more than likely that Daniel will be living with me for a long time to come.
I'm not sure of the exact amount as it increases and decreases due to the financial climate. I asked the pension representative just yesterday how much it would be likely to generate, per month, by the time I reach 60. He thought it would be in the region of £600 to £800 a month.If I had been able to draw my state pension at the same time, I wouldn't be worrying so much.
My current maintenance is £1200 per month and Daniels id £350 per month.
I receive £1200 per month and Daniel £350 per month.
Claire, do you want to ask me any other questions tomorrow? Its getting late isn't it. You probably have to be up early.
I seem to be having trouble sending this message to you.
I receive £1200 per month and Daniel £350.
Its getting late Claire. can we continue tomorrow?
Thankyou very much Claire.
