Hi,

It is more or less impossible to give individual advice without access to such as case papers etc. Either a face to face meeting or at least an in depth telephone conversation with a Welfare Rights Adviser would probably be more beneficial to you.

Details of how to contact such agencies are here:

Hi,

I have to agree with Pete 100%. It's an impossible task, and indeed we are not allowed to give individual advice to members by the site owner Steve Donnision for legal reasons.

To give accurate and reliable advice about a specific benefits problem, we'd need to know a great deal about your income, savings, health, household arrangements and more. To give advice without all this information would seriously risk misinforming you.

I hope you can find some 'face to face' local advice in your area.

Good luck.

Jim
