    Hi @dansyirman and welcome to the Community.  It's nice to meet you.  I'm sorry to hear that you have some industrial diseases.  On the forum we all have varying disabilities/health issues and we all support each other with these so I hope you enjoy being part of our Community.  Good to know you are looking forward to taking part in some discussions as we all love to chat to each other on here.  I look forward to seeing you around.  If we can be of any help/support to you then please just ask.  All the best.  :smile:

    Hi @dansyirman - Welcome to the community & thank you for joining. I'm sorry I don't know anything about Industrial Injuries Disablement Benefit, but will ask a member of the Scope team about this on Tuesday. Do you receive any other benefits? :)

    This is a high risk and complex area. Having an industrial disease is one tiny part of a much bigger picture for which you will definitely need expert advice. A forum is absolutely not the place to get advice on this one.
