My partner wants to move in with me but she has ME and at the moment claims ESA and PIP. When she moves in it looks to me like she will still be able to claim the PIP but not the ESA because once my savings are taken into account with hers then we're over the threshold, the PIP amounts to about £55 a week, the ESA is a lot more so losing it all is going to be a big blow. My income is really low so I'll be barely able to cover our bills and living expenses but no more than that. She thinks that I could claim Carers Allowance, I can't say that I'm keen but I'll go with it if it's the only option and just give it all to her. This all really falls hardest on her financially and from that point of view she'd be better off staying put, blocking up a council house and claiming all the ESA and HB. I feel really concerned about her having so little money coming in when she moves, what she gets at the moment enables her to be independent, do those things that she can do and not feel stressed about her finances.
