Subject: What Benefits am I entitled to ...

Hi all. I hope someone can help me with some advice please. I am married and a full time mum to my 5 year old son. However, I would dearly love to go back to work part time (need the money) but really dont think I could hold a job down. Im suffering quite badly at the moment with my RA and am finding it a struggle just to get through the day without feeling wiped out and in pain.

I was wondering if there is any disability benefits I could apply for? Ive never gone down this route before as I always think the benefits are for people who literally cant walk or function and I would feel like a fraud. My husband works full time so not sure if I would be entitled to any.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Ann, your best place to call is Citizens Advice Bureau. They will be able to tell you any benefits you may be entitled to.
Hope this helps.
