Hi, I was diagnosed with SLE a year ago and it has taken me sometime to get to grips with the lifestyle changes that I have had to make, however I have been told that I am entitled to benefits but I don't know which ones apply to me, and the DWP of been less than helpful to me so I'm at a loss, if there is anyone who can advise me that would be really helpful.

Benefit Help

Hi have you contacted DIAL an agency that assists with benefit claims they usually have a number in your local phone book, give them a call and see if they can help.

Keep smiling

:welcome: Deeana,

I am very happy you have joined the forum. Hopefully you can get the information and support you need to help you deal with your illness.

Orangelily has already given you a good suggestion. You might also check out the UK Disability Benefits forum down towards the bottom on the main page. I have attached the link to the DWP website hoping it might have some answers to your questions also.

Take care,
