I was my mothers carer for several years & in receipt of income support & carers allowance however in recent years & particularly recent months I have became increasingly Ill myself, eventually to the point that I could no longer provide the care my mother needs. Other family members have stepped in to assist my mother & consequently I am no longer in receipt of either benefit. It has been almost a year since I have had any form of income and my debt is rising. I have several chronic health conditions & as a result im unable to work. I recently received advice from a local law centre & the gentleman there filled in forms to apply for PIP on my behalf. That was several months ago. I called up to check where about my claim was up to & they said it had expired by the time the forms reached them however they decided to re-open the case & it has been passed on to the assessment team so the next stage will be to go for a medical assessment.
I'm becoming further in debt as each day goes by & the stress is having an impact on my health. As this is such a long process I was wondering if there is any kind of financial support I'm entitled to whilst waiting for a claim to be processed please? My concentration is very poor & when I try to "research" I lose track. I'd be grateful for any advice. Thank you in advance.
