living with Pulmonary Hypertension

Benefits and financial help

Many people with PH are forced to give up work or reduce their working hours due to the impact of their condition, having a significant knock-on effect to their financial situation.

If you are struggling financially, you are not alone.

Help is at hand from our partners at Turn2Us a national charity that helps people in financial hardship gain access to welfare benefits, charitable grants and support services.

Use their special benefits calculator and grants search tools to find out what you may be entitled to.

Help is also available from the PHA UK team. Our special publication, ‘Financial support: What could my family and I be entitled to?’ was put together to help you negotiate the minefield of benefit entitlement and get what you deserve. Contact office@phauk.org.uk for your copy.

“If your benefit application is turned down initially, do not give up. Sometimes you need to challenge decisions to get what you are entitled to.”
