I'm ill and can't get benefits

5 years ago I lost my husband to Brian hemorrhage I was left his pension from a job he retired from due to ill health 11 years before death I ended up with half of his pension now I did not think I had to declare it so I didn't I was on employment and support allowance which has now been stop and my housing benefit because they found out I was getting my late husbands pension through my tax codes I have been very I'll for years so I need the benefits to help me for that reason. I think I can retire early due to ill health but don't know how to go about it and will I get help ? This all is making my illness much worse but no one seems to care .
