Allow people with a terminal illness to claim state pension early

Petition Details

I appreciate there are benefits available for people who have been diagnosed with a terminal illness but this is not enough. People have paid into the state pension and should be able to spend the time left making memories with friends and family

Additional Information

Imagine how stressful it would be to hear you're going to die from a disease. A death that is likely not going to be pain free, your friends and family will also be on this journey. You may not be able to work as the disease progresses, then the real worry starts on paying bills, food.

At this time you should not have these worries, you should be able to eat properly and have your heating on, but most importantly you should be making memories with your family and friends and enjoy time left
