Just been told I’m up for redundancy. Been with my employer for over 30 years. Last year they made reasonable adjustments to my sales manger role. I was to be based from home on a 3 day week and a reduced salary grade.
Twelve months on due to account management changes my role is up for redundancy. I’m in an impossible position. How will me and my family survive? I get enhanced PIP rates and a small company pension that I’ve drawn on ill health grounds. It’s not enough. What other help/benefit can I get?
How do I, with PPMS, failing mobility, hardly able to walk and no one around on a daily basis to assist me, manage to do the impossible and get to any Jobcentre to claim any benefit including unemployment benefit or whatever it’s now called, and then sign in regularly?? I cannot physically do that. Am I expected to do that in order to get anything that I am entitled to?
Or as usual because it’s MS will I be allowed to not survive and to just exist??
