Hi All,

 

Another post on behalf of my partners sister and farther.

 

Apologies in advance if some of these benefit names have changed and I am calling them the wrong name and for the long post.

 

Background Story;

Partners Dad's house that himself and other daughter was living became UN-inhabitable due to a gas explosion next door that blew a hole in the side (https://www.blackpoolgazette.co.uk/news/a-miracle-escape-from-gas-explosion-at-21-charles-street-in-blackpool-1-8780154)

 

Daughter suffers from moderate Asperger Syndrome and has recently been diagnosed as clinically depressed.

 

She got fired from her job due to not turning up and some conflicts internally that started to escalate (she described it as bullying but I don't think that was the full She got paid out £8k from the job due to being done by the book and they previously had to pay out £40k for a previously fired employee.

 

Her Dad moved into ours whilst she moved into her "partners" Mum's house, her partner is currently a registered carer for his Mum who has now got the onset of dimensia

 

She now has blown through the £8k on material itemswithin the space of 6 months and has no money and no job and claims she can't work due to this depression as unknown people trigger panic attacks but she can attend events like steampunk, real ale events etc filled with unknown people.

 

She is now being prescribed some medication to help with the depression but she has to pay for it, she is constantly now calling her Dad asking for money for these things, he is happy to do it at the moment but solely from necessities.

 

Her Dad also thinks that her partner has also "helped" spend the original £8k payout as he runs an unsuccessful business that is currently £50k+ in debt and can't afford to pay himself.

 

Question;

 

her Dad wants to know what she could be entitled too money / housing wise whilst all this is getting sorted, both house rebuild and depression.

 

She said she applied for JSA but was turned down, there was no proof that she actually went to the Job Center and her story seemed a bit off, we don't think she want's to sign on maybe for sense of pride etc as everyone one else in the family works, but will happily drain her Dad of money and make him pay for her drinks bill etc.

 

She hasn't mentioned anything about seeing if she is entitled to any disability based benefits.

 

Daughter in question is 28 years old and her partner is 47 (I think,) he is a registered carer for his ill Mum, lives at his Mum's home with other family and the Daughter in question, works so many hours a week for his own company but doesn't pay himself as the company has no money and hasn't for years.

 

Any help or advise would be appreciated on how to approach this and again sorry for the long post but I know people are asked for more information on the forum all the time so thought I would try and get as much of it down as possible.

 

Thanks in Advance.

Depending on the area it might not be JSA that she has to apply for but Universal credit, she might be able to apply for Employment support allowance, not sure she would get any help with housing costs unless she can prove, with a contract,that she is paying rent to her partners mother.

To see if where she lives is on Universal credit not JSA.....https://www.gov.uk/guidance/jobcentres-where-you-can-claim-universal-credit

For PIP, DLA is only given to children now, https://www.gov.uk/pip/how-to-claim

Thanks, will pass details on. She doesn't pay rent, it is more just living expenses like food, prescriptions and travel.
