Husband awarded basic rate PIP, but finding it a struggle to keep working
Not sure where to start really. My husband has recently been awarded pip, the basic rate, but is finding it a struggle to keep working. He works 16 hours a week and suffers from rheumatoid arthritis which is getting more aggressive and various treatments are just not working. We are at our wits ends wondering what to do next, it took an army of various people to fill in the pip forms, and although the person who interviewed him was sympathetic, it was not her who made the final decision. I am trying to care for my husband but I am having to work as a carer in the community to cover finances. I hope this makes sense and meets the criteria. Thank you.
