My husband has Parkinson’s, and recently it has worsened and he’s struggling to get work done. He’s thinking about leaving his job because of it. However he works full time, while I only work part time, we’re doing well financially with both of our incomes but I can tell we would struggle if he ends up leaving his job, which leads me onto my question - we currently don’t claim any benefits (as far as I know) for his Parkinson’s, so what benefits are available to us? I’ve looked at websites like this tax calculator but I can’t find anything useful about disabilities, so was hoping someone here could help.
Thank you very much!
