Full/Part time or unemployed
I am disabled with Spina Bifida. I use crutches, wheel chair for longer walks and have arthritis/bone disease. I struggle with pain and therefore sleep patterns are uneven. I worked full time but now asked employer to go part time due to pain/fatigue. I would loike to ask is it better financially to be full time or part time or not at all. Would benefits help who would you recommend to ask as maybe need more figures to work it out. I dont get carers allowance (although never applied as my wife does not care 35 hours a week I would imagine) I have standard PIP care and enhanced mobility. Any help would be great as I never reduced hours and paying bills/mortgage is going to be tricky.
