    I was sent a letter in 2010, about July asking if I wanted to pay a sum of money to make my contributions up to date it said BRING YOUR NI CONTRIBUTIONS UP TO DATE BY PAYING £8.?? I put it in the bin because I thought the government had something in mind that was not to my advantage and so it turned out I was proven correct as it would have meant me going on to contributions based ESA and then being kicked off and being without money while I sorted out income based as they never make it easy for people to swap over from contributions to income based.

    This is terrifyingly awful. I too have been I’ll for a very long time with M.E. and completely understand your situation. Over the years I’ve been bed-bound, housebound and occasionally able to participate in a tiny bit of ‘normal’ (i.e. for an hour or two here and there). Have you contacted any of the M.E. charities to ask for advise? Can you not appeal or re-apply as your health has deteriorated? It’s criminal that you are going through this. Hugs xx

    Awful situation to be in. But it’s even worse if you’re single and totally reliant on benefits and too Ill to work. You live in dread of being found ‘fit to work’ and not being able to.
