Hi everyone, please visit our new look community site and let us know what you think. If you have any problems with the new site, you can still switch back to the current community site.
This is where you can find out about all the amazing things going on in the Online Community. It's where you'll find news about events and awareness months; ways to get involved with Macmillan and up-to-date campaigning news from Macmillan HQ.
There are lots of different benefits that may be available to people affected by cancer - including Disability Living Allowance, Employment and Support Allowance, Personal Independence Payment, Carers’ Allowance, and Housing Benefits. What you are eligible for depends on a whole range of factors, and it can be really tricky to figure it out.
Macmillan benefits advisers like Sarah and Heidi are here to help.
To take part in next week’s chat, join us in the chatroom between 12 and 1pm on Thursday 29 August.
Or, if you can’t make it, post your question in the comments below and I’ll ask it for you. I’ll publish all the questions and answers on our webchat transcripts page after the chat.
You can also speak to a benefits adviser by calling the free Macmillan Support Line on 0808 808 0000 (Monday-Friday, 9am-8pm).
