Hi, my name is hullcity44!

Hi all. I had to leave my job due to my sight I'm registered partially sighted. I was told I'm not entitled to ESA due to lack of stamps but to reapply in jan. However  I had my assessment 2 weeks ago. I currently receive low rate disability I had my pip assessment 4 weeks ago. I'm really struggling with money as my husband works I xant claim universal. Just wondered if any one else in similar situation.  Thank you

    I would also speaking to CAB to see if they offer you a benefit review might be worth something to consider they have knowledge, expertise on benefit situations can be helpful.
