DWP & Government: Stop Benefit Cuts, Stop Pension Cuts and Age Rise, Stop Discrimination!
0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!
So for a couple of years I have wondered about what benefits I'm entitled to, as I'm sure other people have. I have mental health illness's which in turn has made my doctor say I am unfit for work but I'll go into that a bit more later. I currently receive Employment and Support Allowance & Housing Benefits (currently in process of PIP claim).
My concern is the fact that if I want to marry my partner, I will have to rely on HIS hard work and my PIP. Now please tell me how my partner is suppose to care for me & work for £300 a week plus if I win my PIP then I can claim this of max £141 a week. Now I'm not sure about the rest of you but the fact of my depression and anxiety etc his car is a must to get me to doctor appointments, transport to see my family when I can and shopping etc. I will lose my ESA and Housing Benefits if I marry him so my question is this, why must our partners be the ones to have to support us with all of their money? How is this even right and been considered?!
Why should their hard work and earned money have to pay out for us the whole way, scrapping for pennies after the end of it. We won't be able to afford
- Road Tax
- Car Insurance
- Life Insurance (when it comes to it)
- Phone Bills
- TV licence
- Bathroom Essentials e.g. towels, shampoo and conditioner, soap...
- Female Essentials
- Clothing and the list goes on.
DWP have shamed us for long enough! We have suffered by them, people have even COMMITTED SUICIDE due to their system and how it runs. As someone who suffers with mental health, I can say this is not the way I wanted to live my life. I wish I could work, see my friends, be able to keep my hygiene up, change out of my clothes without having to be told and forced to! How long must we be pushed under their shoes, they don't care for us at all.
I don't want your money, just your time and a signature to help people like myself and others who cannot work due to their illnesses not to have to rely on their partners money if they get married. I don't really see the difference between a couple and a married couple...so why take away someones benefits for the sake of a marriage which is a last name change?!
C'mon guys, lets fight back against the cuts, ALL THE MONEY CUTS! THE NHS, DWP BENEFITS, OUR PENSIONS!!
FIGHT BACK AND LETS MAKE OUR LIVES EASIER!!
Lets just say its not just DWP...Theresa May I am ASHAMED OF YOU! LIVE UP TO YOUR EXPECTATIONS OR LEAVE! ITS OK FOR ALL YOU IN THERE TO GIVE YOURSELF AN EXTRA BONUS BUT WHAT ABOUT US?!!!
Thank-you if you sign and if you share. I hope something is done for the sake of our lives. We must take back our rights to live...
