    Hi @Roxi123 and welcome to the community :smile:
    It is good to have you here.
    Now, assuming that you see the same as me when you log in there should be a purple band across the bottom of your page which contains links to various resources. The third column across is headed 'Employment, finances and disability benefits' and the links in that column will, I'm sure, take you where you most need to go.
    This one is the 'Talk about PIP/DLA' link https://community.scope.org.uk/categories/talk-about-pip-dla which, like the others, will take you to posts and discussions about the subject that might be useful. The fourth link down will take you to 'Ask a benefits advisor', which might also be helpful to you.
    Let me know, if you can, how this works for you, and perhaps tell us a bit more about yourself so that we can look at ways of helping and supporting you.
    Don't hesitate to ask any further questions - you're perfectly safe here.
    Warmest best wishes to you,
    Richard

    Hello @Roxi123, welcome!

    Our Talk about PIP/DLA group is a great place to get support and advice on this subject, just as @RichardVR suggested, so I have moved this post over.

    Our benefit advisor answered a similar question in this discussion so the answers could be useful.

    I hope this helps, let me know if you have any questions!
