Full review of benefits available for people with Chronic & Hidden Disabilities

Petition Details

Many people with chronic illnesses & hidden disabilities have not worked after diagnosis, therefore no NI has been paid for them meaning they're not eligible for some benefits.

This can result in debt, suicide, mental health issues, poverty & break-ups.

Additional Information

There needs to be a review to help these people.

These people have no voice, no one helping them to support themselves. Benefits like PIP often only pay for the treatment the individual needs and there is no more left for the month to live. With the cost of living rising so rapidly, these circumstances are becoming worse very quickly.

There are millions of people in this awful situation across the UK. The stress makes their conditions worse so there is no end to this vicious circle! The government have not looked at these issues ever!
