Living with a chest condition can have a major impact on your financial situation. It is important to make sure that you get all the help you need to prevent additional stress and anxiety. There is support available to help you access the information and complete any relevant forms.
You may be entitled to benefits that you are not aware of. Every individual's situation is different and it can be helpful to speak to your social worker, a welfare rights officer, Citizens Advice Bureau, local carers centre or a money advice centre. Benefits you, or someone who cares for you, may be entitled to include Personal Independence Payment (PIP), Disability Living Allowance (DLA) if you are under 65, Employment and Support Allowance (ESA), Working Tax Credit and more.
Information about all benefits can be found at www.gov.uk/browse/benefits
There is also a lot of information and support available about self-directed support which gives you choice over your care if you need it. This can be found at www.selfdirectedsupportscotland.org.uk
