Hi, my name is alibobs1313!

I’ve spent the past almost two years trying to leap over the obstacles put in my path for trying to claim Universal credit/lcwra and PIP. I’m now at the end of an incredibly anxiety ridden time of my life and am being awarded all which I am entitled to. I have mental illnesses.  Through these processes I believe that I have information which may help other people trying to claim and make their experience easier than mine has been. If I can help in any way I will. Thanks.

    Hi @alibobs1313 - & welcome to the community. I'm sorry claiming UC & PIP has been a struggle, but very pleased you got there. Thank you for joining, & for your offer of help, which is appreciated. It's through sharing what we've learnt that hopefully other members get helped. :)

    Hi @alibobs1313

    Welcome to the community and thank you for introducing yourself, I hope you are well today.

    Well done for continuing to fight and eventually getting what you are entitled to, however I'm sorry that it was such a stressful experience for you that impacted your mental health. How is your mental health at the minute now that the process is over?
