This is important as in most cases your benefit entitlement will have to be reassessed to take account of your new circumstances. Most benefits are reduced during a stay in hospital usually after either four or six weeks.
If you were not claiming any form of benefit prior to entering hospital you may now be entitled to claim.
You will need to have your benefit reassessed when you return home. You may also be entitled to other benefits if you have become disabled as a result of your illness.
To find out if the benefit you are claiming is affected by a stay in hospital or if there are any benefits that you may be entitled to please contact us.
