HELLO ALL I HAVE JUST JOINED THE SCOPE COMMUNITY AS I FEEL AND HOPE I CAN GET HELP . THREE YEARS AGO I LOST MOST OF MY SIGHT AND SUFFERED A BACK INJURY IN A CAR ACCIDENT. AT 61 I WAS INTRODUCED TO THE BENEFITS SYSTEM FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE AS I CAN NO LONGER WORK.I HAVE FOUND IT A DIFFICULT AND CONFUSING SYSTEM .

    Hi Pixie,

    Welcome to the community. I hope we can help. Are you currently applying for any benefits?

    We have a benefits calculator that might help you work out what you are entitled. It can be incredibly confusing. If it would be easy to talk to someone - you can ring our helpline for free on 0808 800 3333 (9-5).

    Thanks.
