    Thank you so much, spice man. I have a number of questions to ask about ending tax credits and applying for ESA so I will look at your information tomorrow. Take care too

    Hello @Zephyrine1133 Thanks very much.  I am sure the community will advise on certain benefits as well.

    Understand I do not really have enough knowledge to advise. All I can say we have the community to advise.

    Have a look at benefit advice and posts.  Also a benefit advisor . Some times they are extremely busy so usually the team will answer. From SCOPE or post your questions and they will send it to Benefit Advisor.

    Hope that helps.

    Anything else I am sure you will be in touch with finding the support you need and I know from personal experience.

    Plenty of support and friends here.

    Please take care
