Disability Benefit?


My hubby was diagnoised some time ago with episodal cluster attacks ( had them 13 years now)  but has never claimed as he has tried to work

We are new to state benefits and wonder is there anywhere which can help us navigate the whole process as recently I lost my job and they put me on the wrong benefit which meant I got nothing even though I no longer have a job.  So I basically dont trust them to advise us correctly.

Your help would be greatly appreciated

Hi Louise, Cluster Headache was confirmed as a disability during a stated case in 2001 (London Clubs v Hood). Can I suggest that you contact The Brain Charity in Liverpool on 0151 2982999 and ask to speak to one of the benefits/employment advisers.

Good luck!
