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

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

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.
