Support Group and PIP

posted 15 Apr 2017, 04:59 by Alan B.
We had another good MS Support Group meeting in April (remember the group meets every month on the 2nd Friday) and the topic of Welfare Benefits - especially the Personal Independence Payments (PIP) - came up again. It is clear that claiming benefits, form-filling, being assessed and challenged is extremely stressful for us all. MS doesn't enjoy stress!! Even the most informed of us find this difficult. The message seems to be DON'T DO IT ALONE!. There is help available if you have to claim for assistance. The Moray CAB have received a contribution from the local MS Society branch to enhance their service to MSers. Although they are going through staff changes at the moment they are still a good source of support. People of working age can also get help from the Moray Council. There are links throughout this website so do browse through it using the toolbar on the left. Happy Spring!
