I have joined this post as I have a disability from seven year's ago which forced me to leave my lovely job as a social worker. I now have Lupus LSE and more recently Fibromyalgia. Fortunately for me, I worked long enough to use my superan pension of 36 years. I also have my state pension to live on. I have tried to claim PIP on three occasions with no points awarded even though some day's I can't open the milk bottle. I've given up on PIP. This tax year I find myself paying tax working my incoming's and out going's I am £45.00 worse off than last year I also this year have to pay full rent ad all the benefit's I now receive is £12.00 per month council tax. This lousy Government is killing us off.
