Just wanted to share my news with you all that my application for Ill Health Retirement has been accepted!

It all feels a bit surreal at the moment but I know that now I can concentrate on getting the balance right for my health and being able to move on from this kind of limbo I've been in this past year.

It will take a little time for my payments to be sorted but my contract officially ends immediately since I got the notification.

A very relieved and happy Jensue

That's great that it has come through. That is nothing I have ever had to deal with, but I can imagine the relief it must bring!

Congratulations! I know what a relief this must be and yes you now can take care of yourself and when you are sick you have no worries about having to go to work. I don't think I could work now if I wanted to and thank heavens my disability went through. It was a true blessing. Again, congratulations!

Warm hugs,

Peggy
