Hi Lu, good to see you back and posting.

In terms of what you are querying, I would pop into your area local job centre plus office, and they will be able to put you in the right direction, from there, they will have a pool of team of people who deal with benefits, and they will be the ones, if they will have very good knowledge, regarding what you are asking. I hope this might help you.

Good to see you back.

Hi Lu,

I've only just realised, that you might be able to seek help, from a mental health benefits adviser, who can usually be located within your local or a council for your borough. They would be the ones to guide you through, and help you get the right benefits support financially that you need.

Sorry about my last post, I just realised, a mental health benefit adviser who specialises for people with mental health problems, financially, are ones to approach.

I do agree, though, anything to do with benefits financially, a bit like a bank, really, is scary.
Best Wishes,

Fairy Lu I get SDA and I am on middle rate DLA,I think you will qualify on standard rate PIP as it is the same,so don't worry,you should get the extra money so long as you live alone you will qualify.
You can get help to fill in the forms to claim ESA and PIP from Citizen's Advice Bureau.Look online to find your local office.Good luck,I hope you get all you need to get by.:hug:I hope you feel better today too!Nikitax


I don't know I'm from the U.S.A. But I hope you get the answers you are looking for. :hug:
