After working for 46 years my husband was made redundant in March last year. In May last year his illness deteriorated rapidly and he was signed on the sick. After a face to face assessment in January this year, he has been placed in the support group so his money has been increased from £71.70 to £106.50 per week. This was also backdated to August last year. Does anyone know if this is paid for a fixed term ie. one year or will he continue to get paid so long as he is still too ill to work? I work so if it was to become means tested I doubt he would get anything. Thanks Jill
