Customer Question

Hello Thomas, My husband is now 66 years old British, Born Jan 5, 1949.  Four  years ago he was paralyzed from waist down. He has minimal recovery , able to stand and walk a few meters in two crutches but mostly in a wheelchair.  His right hand has minimal grip .  His employer kept him for 4 years with massive reduction in his salary  . Employer forced him to retire in June 30 ,2015 .  He is unemployed , no job and no chances as we are in UAE.

 

 I believe that he has paid a few years of national contribution but lost his ID.  He has lived  outside UK since 1978 and has not made contributions since then.  have 3 boys, 20 , 14 and 10 years old. If he returns  to UK , obviously cannot work, what benefits are available for him at his age and disability?    All 3 boys have British passports but we never lived in UK.  We met and married in the Philippines .  He was a resident in the PHilippines until we moved to UAE.  I am still holding a Philippine Passport.  If we all move to UK , can we get help for housing , education and physiotherapy for him?  Can I work as spouse in UK?  Thank you.
