Hello. I’m seeking advice from anyone who has successfully gained Ill health retirement due to RA from the Civil Service or similar.
After 21 years my lovely employers are kindly looking to kick me while I’m down and terminate my employment. They are pushing me to apply for IHR but I am concerned that due to the nature of my condition and the fact that one day I may be in remission, that I won’t qualify. I’m looking to find a precedent which I can use to support my application.
I am 44, have sero positive RA, was diagnosed 2.5 years ago and have been off sick for around 2 years on and off. I have tried and failed 3 DMARD and 2 Biologicals.
Any advice on the subject would be greatly received.
