Stop long delays on Disability Pension

This petition had 2,069 supporters

My partner was diagnosed with lung cancer . We went to centre link with a doctors certificate and after 2 months of endless visits and phone calls we are still waiting for some bureaucrat to make a decision if he is eligible for the medical disability pension. Apparently he has to be diagnosed treated and stabilized. I am working full time and after paying rent and bills and petrol and food there is no money left to pay for treatment which can then stabilize him. I have borrowed money from family to help him get the treatment he needs. 

There is many people out there facing the difficult time we are and many that don't have the family and friends that can loan them the money to get treatment. I can not imagine the despair they face . We could be waiting 6 months for any assistance. No one at centrelink can tell me where we are at.Our paperwork has probably been filed away in the bottom of the drawer.
