Il health retirement

I am likely to be looking at IHR. I am looking at peoples experience of this. I am 48 years old with 2 small pensions and one with 18 years contributions I am likely to get ESA support group. I have a mortgage. How do people find to manage the financial side of things?

Hope no one minds me asking.

@bullman , I was offered a Voluntary Early Retirement package when I hit 50.

I had to look at all the financial scenarios to ensure that I could make it work for me and my good lady.

Then I had to consider the health implications. Would I be better off being out of the “frying pan”, as long as I avoided the fire!

If you’re looking at ESA, would you be able to get PIP as well?

You may want to go and have a chat with the Citizen’s Advice people. They may identify issues that you haven’t seen.

Thanks Stumbler. I already get enhanced mobility and daily living PIP. Your comments are valued.
