Im a cm who has just broken her foot and have been told I cant work. I can get incapacity benefit apparently does anyone know if it is worth claiming anything else. (I have a working hubby). Anyone had experience of a broken limb and not being able to childmind? My particular break has a potential of a 12 week healing process (looked it up on net) because of where it is. Tried persuading insurers to let me look after the over 8's since they just need a supervising eye and can get themselves out of the house in an emergency. But no luck.
You may be entitled to contributory employment and support allowance (replaced incapacity benefit) if you have paid enough national ins conts, also income related ESA if by being off sick your family has a low income and doesn't claim any income support. Hth
