Hi, I have RA (seropositive) which i have had for 7 years now. I have just reduced my working hours to 17 as find it difficult to do more. I was wondering if anyone knows of any help i might be able to get as obviously my wages have also reduced. I am 50 years old, married but with no children. Any advice would be great, thank you. :D

    Hello there and welcome from me too :)

    I can't help other than to say this site might. I hope so. https://www.gov.uk/browse/benefits

    (Mods, might it be worth putting this website on a sticky at the top of this forum page?)
