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.
I can wait for the answer . Thank you.
