need urgent advice please
Hi, I really need some expert advice. I am disabled and my wife has COPD. My wife has been on furlough since the beginning of the pandemic and is due to go back to work in four weeks, which scares me and my wife.
My wife works in a supermarket and will be having her second vaccination in three weeks. Having her on furlough has been a blessing for me as my health has got worse.
My wife ears £800 per month and she is 65 this year. My wife is worried about going back to work because of the pandemic and her copd, and is worried about leaving me on my own. Her doctor does not want her to go back to work until she has had her second vaccination.
My wife has mentioned about retiring early on health grounds, so retiring when she is 65 instead of 66. But as far as i know if she gave up work then she would not receive her pension until she was 66
Can anyone please provide me with some professional advice on this matter, or will my wife be forced to return to work for another year. we could not afford to lose her income
