    Thank you for joining and sharing. So sorry to hear about you losing your job.

    I understand as all of the community. You have come to the right place for support and information, advice.

    Have a look at our on line benefit checker.  This will give you some idea of what your entitled to.

    You can find out more information about benefits on our website.

    Something to consider is to speak to CAB, Citizens Advice for  a benefit check, help with form filling in and anything else they could advise on.

    Please can I ask are you receiving help and support with your mental health.

    I have used mental health charities when aspects of my mental health need addressing.,uk. is one such organisation helped and advised me when there were issues and problems.

    Hope that helps.

    I very glad to meet you. I'm sorry to read that you have lost your job. @thespiceman has provided really useful information. Do you have a support network around you?

    Yes, also sorry to learn of your difficulties. I was a successful businesswoman but my worsening Epilepsy, depression and memory problems meant my company and I had to part company. I tried a less pressurised job but was useless. I’m wondering how other people manage with PIP?

    We have some discussions on PIP if you haven't already seen them? What industry were you in?
