If you are on the sick from work and receive sick pay are you still entitled to a cancer payment
The cancer payment from the DLA has nothing to do with how much you are earning or have in savings, it's a payment to help you deal with the cost of having cancer. Our McMillan nurse sorted ours out, talk to them. Carol
Hi parkie were only just figuring it out, it's a payment from the government to people with cancer, it usto be done through the DLA i understand that macmillan can help to sort it out. Good luck....... Billy
I get Personal Indepedence Payment (PIP) which I believe has replaced Disability Living Allowance (DLA).
The payment is between £23 and £149 per week. You can find more information online at www.gov.uk/pip
I am still working full time and didn't realise I would be entitled to this. I would suggest giving Macmillan a call as they completed the application on my behalf and provided all the relevant medical information. They can also give advice on other financial support you may be entitled to.
i phoned them directly, gave them all my details etc, they are sending me some forms to complete & return.
i will let you know what the outcome is.
thanks for your response
