      There send you a form which I won't say is short it's a rather long form . All you need to do is send proff of your dignoses any documents you have from apptment you've been send to them . Your probley be asked to go for an assement like I did they asked every one now to go . Just remember when you fill the for or in the assement you think of the worse case like your really bad days . I know we don't get many good days but this will help as you have to 0ut the most negative things down to get any were now we shouldn't have to prove what we've got but the system is like that now . .anyone help you need I'm here x

    Hi, when your work sick pay runs out you should automatically go on to Statutory sick pay. If you work less than 16 hours a week you can claim ESA. If you google benefits, the gov.uk one will come up and you will be able to see what else you are eligible for. And I agree, def claim PIP, I get it too. Good luck. x
