As well as not having any ESA since February this year I now have to deal with my Father's funeral. He lived 190 miles away from me and I am having to travel there to sort everything out. I cannot get any financial help for travel expenses so don't know how I'm going to get there. The bills are mounting up at home and the cupboards are bare. How can a society treat people like this. I am in constant pain and the stress of this latest problem has made everything worse. I have had to sign for a £3000 funeral which I don't know how I am going to pay for and the social fund may reject my application for costs as I am not in receipt of any qualifying benefit at this time (only DLA). Any advice would be gratefully received as I don't know how much more I can take.
