OK I wonder if anyone can help here.
My Father-in-law has had his big toe amputated back in March this year, due to ill health caused by his diabetes. This has meant that he is unable to work as a self employed welder.
He is 61 yrs old and when he made a claim they told him he would only qualify for Pension Credit (which is squit, he qualifies for the above). He made the claim and got awarded 10p per week pension credit.
This has been his only income since March, and whilst he tries hard the credit crunch is stretching his 10p per week a little too far now.
Please can anyone advise me what options he has, and who best to speak to, as the Jobcentre Plus people are a waste of space in helping.
Thanks in advance, Foosy
