What can my Mother get?
What can my mum get? if any help? Everyone seems to get it somthing, but not her
My father passed away last year and since then my mother has started to struggle with bills and food etc. She lives in her own mortgage free house and has her private pension and half of my dads private pension totaling £453 Monthly, that's it!
She's not at retirement age yet and still has 16months to go .. but is unable to work as he's been off for the last 8 years having had a head injury in work which changed who she was, even now she's a lot better, her head gets tired and she wouldn't be able to work full time. she tried a job at card factory for a few hours every other day but found it too much. When she becomes pension age at December 2024 she'll be fine - but she needs help from now till then
Anyone have any advice? We don't want to sell the house or take any money out of it.
