my partner and i are both working atm,but my partner has been told he shouldnt be working he has had the back/leg and foot pain for 4 years and its there all day every day and he cant get comfortable at all with it.he has been on strong pain kllers but he would fall asleep all the time on them so he couldnt take them as he would look after children whilst i worked
i cant seem to get any clear answers about help we would get if partner stopped working.i would prob go to work full time and hopefully we should still get tax credits
i have been advised my partner may not be able to claim incapacity benefit as he has previously been a stay at home dad whilst i worked and because of the pain so he didnt pay N.I for a long period
the thing is i have read this money is only about £70 a week is that all the help we would get.do the job centre help at all with maybe him finding a job that woud maybe more suitable although his current job isnt strenuous so im not sure what job he could take on
im worried about him giving up work as he lost alot confidence when he was out of work looking after the children.
i would appreciate any advice thanks
