Disabled dad dies after being told he’s fit for work – then benefit bosses accept he needed help AFTER his death : Mirror

Heartbroken Louise Aldous has revealed the Department for Work and Pensions only accepted boyfriend Mark Hayes should have been entitled to support after his death.

A disabled dad died after being repeatedly refused benefits and told he was fit to work, his heartbroken girlfriend has revealed.

Louise Aldous revealed the Department for Work and Pensions only accepted Mark Hayes should have been entitled to support after his death.

She said: “I believe he’d still be here now but for the way they treated him. The stress made his high blood pressure worse.”

Mark, 48, died of a brain haemorrhage in 2013.

The Sunday People understands his illnesses included liver failure and immobility through three metal plates in his legs and hips.

Despite needing full-time care from Lucinda, painter Mark repeatedly failed disability benefit tests.

Lucinda, 24 – who has since received Personal Independence Payment (PIP) and Carer’s Allowance backdated to his first rejected application in 2010 – said his assessments at Nutwood House in Canterbury, Kent, involved “silly questions”.

  1. “A DWP spokesman said:“Our thoughts are with Mr Hayes’ family. Decisions are based on information provided.”

    Since when have DWP made decisions based on evidence, they deliberately choose to ignore it.

    1. The DWP and those doing the assessments are as bent as a butchers hook. They don’t consider the evidence, they ignore it, put in underthe carpet, hope you don’t appeal, leave you to rot & sometimes DIE. And decided based on an unfair assessment bassed on a computer programme designed to fail you.

      “A DWP spokesman said: “Decisions are based on information provided.”

      BOLLOXS.

      Nazi loving scum.
