hi i need help with a welfare benefits problem. my wife is disabled and currently on dla, now she was on the higher rates of care and mobility, now she is on high rate mobility low rate care, thus this means as my wifes carer i have been sacked,yet she still needs care, the dla did not use the right information and have changed the qualifying criteria without changeing the forms, we are being forced to go to a tribunal and can not find help with legal advice as legal aid has been changed for welfare benefits. can you help also we now have to pay 25% bedroom tax but have not received any notifaction from housing benefits so now are £508 in arrears where do we stand on that.

hi for housing benefit i will have to pay, but i need to know the rules as housing benefit haven't contacted me to inform me about anything. yet are charging me even though they havent informed me.is this legal.
as for the dla, i have lost my carers allowence, immediately, i lose income support 21june, my wife's dla goes from high rate care to low rate resulting in loss of job. but dla didn,t use up to date info, they used the atos doctor's opinion rather than fact, and using dla forms means you are guaranteed to lose as they seem to use pip rules which are different, even if you still get dla until 2015. plus in the decision they say care is now more personal and intimate , yet it does not say that in the forms or rules, yet i do a lot of the personal stuff, but atos decided my wife dosent need it when she doe's. how do i stand
no as i was and still am entitled to housing benefit
yes i does affect me, but i havent been overpaid as i am still on benefits due to looking after my wife. you don't seem to of read the question .
this is mainly about the dla not the bedroom tax.
as for the bedroom tax you need to read the new rules as you don't understand the question which is quite simple
i won't be paying for this
