A wheelchair-bound man from Littlehampton has been left ‘devastated’ after the Government axed his disability allowances just days before Christmas, according to the Littlehampton Gazette.
Jon Ball, 59, has suffered from Klinefelter’s syndrome all his life. It’s a condition which has left him in constant pain and in need of heavy doses of medication.
However, this month, the Department for Works and Pensions (DWP), which provides his incapacity benefit and disability allowance, said he was no longer eligible for support.
He explained that due to his condition, he was forced to take dozens of pain relief and muscle relaxant tablets a day just to get by.
