Relief for disabled Grimsby man following arrival of letter accepting benefit claim
A DISABLED man was relieved yesterday after his benefit claim was accepted following threats it would be stopped.
Graham Blakey, 52, suffers from about ten seizures a day in connection with a range of illnesses but was told to “prove” his problems as part of a nationwide disability benefits review – and was featured in Wednesday’s Grimsby Telegraph.
However, yesterday he received a letter informing him that he would be given Employment Support Allowance from January 2, which replaces Income Support and the Disability Living Allowance.
Mr Blakey said: “The whole process was very stressful for disabled people, but the letter was a huge relief.”
