Housing benefit, council tax benefit, maybe PIP but the waiting time just for an assessment is horrendous, I'm still waiting for mine after I applied for it in October. Maybe a trip to you local CAB would give you more info x

Anybody claiming esa and pip to be honest it depends on the area you live in on how long your pip is assessed by medical. it seems atos and capita are sitting on cases that should have been done which is not fair on anybody who needs help. Just all keep your peckers up and keep smiling and don't let the system get you down
