    Financial Help For Blind Person 20th Feb 13 at 8:28 PM
    Hi there,

    first off i apoligize if i have put this in the wrong section.

    i am in desperate need of help and advice.

    i am newly registered blind and have been told i will have to wait at the very least 6 months to get a support worker to help me get all the benefits i deserve, as it stands i only receive the lower rate of DLA which is roughly 165 per month ,my wife earns roughly about 800 per month making that an annual pay of around 9600.

    We have only been married a year, and i stopped geting income support because my wife works more than 24 hours a week. So as it stands i feel as if she is the only 1 bringing in any money.

    I just wondered if there was some other kind of benefit i could get to boost my "income" because i am only getting my DLA this is around 41.00 a week to live off of.

    Any advice is greatly appreciated.
