My name is Kevin and I am now 58yrs old. I survived an M.I in 2014.
I am new to this site and am really looking for some help and, maybe answers to help me understand.
Any help I get will be very much appreciated.
Having previously had an M.I, Cardiac Arrest, Stent fitted, x2 AF Ablations, x 3 Adenosine Stress Tests, x 3 Angiograms, MRI and CT scans. I have now been diagnosed with Prinzmetal's Angina (Coronary Vasospasm) along with my Chronic Coronary Heart Disease as well. I also have minor blockages in my Left Coronary Artery and in the front area of my heart.
I looked at trying to claim Incapacity Benefit because since the M.I, in 2014, I have not worked nor claimed any Benefits.
Does anybody know if I am entitled to benefits of any type? Our Income is vey limited thanks to a Gov't Pension I receive but that income doesn't cover our monthly outgoings.
I have looked at the DWP site, but to be honest, it's a minefield getting your head round it and finding where/if I am entitled to claim any Benefits.
Can anyone offer some help and/or information, Please?
