    Hello @hunter1010 and a warm welcome to the community. Glad you have found us, but sorry to hear you're having such a hard time. Not a benefits advisor, I can't give you a specific answer to this, but we do have people here who will be able to help.
    Please bear with us and they will get back to you asap.
    In the meantime, if there is anything more you can tell us or if you have any questions to ask us, please don't hesitate.
    Warmest best wishes to you,
    Richard

    Hi @hunter1010

    Welcome to the community. We have a benefits checker which might be a good place to start. Let us know if you have any questions. The main disability benefit is called PIP - you can do a self test here to see if you might be eligible.
