I have had to step down to part time work because the pain of spinal compression playing with nerves (in very short, humorous terms) and can't actually take the drop in income financially - I need help. I was wondering if I could claim any benefits (UK), even if temporary, that could help me with this situation, and if they would be taxable? I've looked at this tax calculations website but not found much on benefits. It's slowly getting better, but that's the issue: slowly. I can't afford to take out a loan, and don't have enough in savings to keep going for long. Can someone advise?
