@Kezzie62 Do you mean the US will continue sending me SSDI while I'm in the UK, as long as I qualify for it... in the US? That sounds unlikely, but I Just wanted to be sure of what you said.
Is there a thread already made that I can read about pensions in general in the UK?
The hard thing is.... my actual chronic illness is very little-known, even though very wide-spread. The CDC doesn't even acknowledge it exists, so much controversy exists around it. So my diagnoses that got me SSDI here in the States are cognitive and psychological. It's nearly impossible to get SSDI for my chronic illness in the States so I'm guessing it will be doubly hard in the UK. Very sad. I will look for a group specific to my illness; thank you! If you know of any UK chronic illness message boards, etc, do let me know.
I don't know if this will impact your reply, but as far as my disability goes, I require no care from the government except in the form of lost income due to inability to work full time. I do work part time but even that is sporadic.
Also is there a general NHS trust thread I can read and familiarize myself with it?
