Autism and state pension
I'm High functioning Autistic ( diagnosed aged 62) full time Carer to my youngest son also HF Autistic. My question is about receiving state pension next April aged 65. Are there any advantages to me registering myself disabled before that. I have an emergency care plan for my son but none for me to date or a will for that matter. Feeling very dispirited and weary at the moment as l see other peookp whizzing off on one week and two week breaks. London is stifling. Anyone else burying themselved in forward planning to avoid the misery and monotony of the present. Feel like August has me on hold, squeezing me dry of all creativity, stamina and joy. Jokes please anyone.
