Any benefits available to me?
I have chronic migraine, been off work as a teacher since October. I have met with union, HR and headteacher over the months but been too sick to return. Have seen a neurologist, have another appointment at the end of June. My gp has also referred me to kings college hosp london. I have applied for pip but have only just sent form off. I am on half pay and this runs out in sept/ oct. My union and HR have supported an ill health early retirement application but they are very hard to get. I'm just waiting for neuroligist to return forms. I am a single mum with 2 children aged 13 and 11. I don't know if I'm getting pip, i don't know if I'm getting ill health retirement. But my pay stops in october.
