TOPIC: Return to Work

Return to Work 5 years 10 months ago #116329

  • injuredcyclist
This is just to say a HUGE thankyou to Benefits & Work for helping me throughout my recovery.It has been almost four years since my accident. Its been life changing and its taken a while to recover. I might not be as good as new but I'm now able to get back to work.

Thanks guys. Without your help it would have been a complete nightmare.

I have one last query - if anyone has any info at all it would be very much appreciated.

Im currently claiming ESA and I will get signed off by my hospital specialist & GP on the 1st Feb.
I am going to try & get my own business going - do I just call up the DWP & tell them (Im guessing I will need to write to them with letters from my specialist & GP) Im still waiting to hear about the latest decision ( I was in the support group)
Also - is there any return to work help I can get - Working Tax Credits? I expect to be earning not very much at all for the 1st year!!!

Anyway - thanks again. This site has been a godsend and good luck to all you guys.

Keep smiling & keep fighting. :)
