    Hi and welcome 

    It depends on your circumstances what you may be entitled to and without more info isn't easy to advise 

    Try using a benefits calculator and you may also qualify for pip you can find lots info in our benefits section 
    I have professional experience in HR within public,  private, and charity sectors.  If I can help I will

    Hi @AyubKhan6

    Welcome to the community! Sorry to hear that you are having difficulty with your health conditions, but it's good to have you with us all the same :)

    As janer1967 says, in terms of us being able to signpost you to some additional resources, it would be good to get to know a bit more about you and your circumstances. That is, if you're happy to share a bit more information about yourself.

    Also, just to get you started, I've included a link to the Benefits calculator and the Benefits advice pages on the Scope website. Plus, you might want to check out some of the discussions in this section of our Online Community as well - What benefits am I entitled to?

    Hope that's helpful! Just give us a shout if you have any questions for us or if would like any help finding your way around the forum :)

    There's also this new benefits checker tool
    DWP Benefits Checker: What could you claim? (shorthandstories.com)
    Haven't tested it to see how useful it actually is
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

    Welcome to the community @ayubkhan :) Please do take a look at the benefits calculator linked above, and let us know how you get on. Are you currently claiming any benefits? Are you in employment?

    Just to make you aware, I've moved your post into are 'what benefits am I entitled to?' category, and added a bit to the title of your post so that other members will be able to find it more easily.
