Hi, my name is Pinkie50!

I care for my husband who is 51 and has severe COPD.  He is on oxygen.  I have been of work with stress and have decided that my husbands care is all I can manage as my job is causing stress by having a bully boss.  Worried about money so need to sort it out.

    Hi Pinkie50,

    I'm sorry to hear that you've had problems at work. We can certainly help you make sure you're receiving all the benefits you should be getting so you can concentrate on caring for your husband. There may be some different options depending on what benefits your husband is already getting. 

    If you can post back with more details about what he's receiving (or try the benefits calculator Chris mentioned) and we can advise you further.

    best wishes
