Hi,  I have been on disability for a few years, I use a wheelchair, I also have R/A and psoriais in and over my hands which can be painful so slow movement. I am getting very scared at  the moment, I have now turn't of the tele.  Disability is the only benift I recieve and I keep hearing disability will stop if you cant work from home, well I have been looking through the jobs home based and I can't find anything that I could do or understand. If my disabilty is stopped I won't be able to cope.

    Disability benefits refer to PIP/DLA/ADP or AA. I’ve not heard of anything about working when claiming just those benefits. Neither of those have anything to do with your ability to work.

    Not only that, it’s all speculation at the moment and no one knows what exactly will happen in the future.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Heya @billydobedo and welcome to the community! 

    As Poppy has said, nothing is set in stone and we wont know anything until Thursday, so please try not to worry.  It seems the rumours are all to do with Universal credit, I've not heard anything about any others.
