    I've got severe Rheumatoid arthritis,and can't use my right hand I've had a knee replacement that went wrong and can't hardly bend my knee.,I'm only 54, and I have a son who's 18 and in his last year of college.I get easa and I'm in the support group and I got the enhanced disability when my son turned 18 in January they suddenly knocked £60 of my money,my son is at college full time,and can't find a job to fit in with his hours,so I pay for his travelling and meals etc,but with loosing this £60 I'm struggling like mad,is there any thing else I can claim

    Hi @gillian29, and welcome to the community!

    I'm so sorry to hear that you're struggling. I'd recommend having a look at the online benefits calculator: you input your details, and it tells you what else you may be entitled to. Have a go, and do come back to us with any questions!
