Hi, my name is numptienick!......benefits
I lost my job in May this year due to me having Parkinsons Disease.I am 56 years old and have worked since i was 17.I went to the job centre to try and claim some benefits on 23rd May .As of today 7th September i have received just £19 .My wife works 23 hours a week and because of that for every £1 she earns they take 63p of my benefits,so basically i am trying to run the house on her part time wage.I do receive PIP which is £330 every 4 weeks and i have tried to claim new style esa but that hasn;t been paid yet.I am in such a mess and feel let down badly
