Heart attack victim refused benefits and left ‘with nothing’ to live on, despite collapsing at work

He spent three days in hospital recovering from a heart attack that nearly cost him his life.

A heart attack survivor claims he was refused Universal Credit payments despite collapsing at work and given little chance of survival, it has been reported.

Jeremy Corfield, 49, was rushed into theatre after collapsing during a shift as a car park enforcement officer in Quinton, and spent three days in hospital recovering from a heart attack that almost cost him his life.

He was diagnosed with angina and told he wouldn’t be well enough to return to work for several weeks.

But despite his near death experience, Mr Corfield was told by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) that he was ineligible to claim monthly Universal Credit payments.

Mr Corfield had been claiming the new benefit after becoming unemployed, but his payments were reduced to zero after starting his new job.

He was told that he would be unable to resume his claim despite being ruled ‘unfit for work’ by his GP.

The sooner we get a basic income the sooner we will see an end to these types of story's but its unlikely we will ever see that under a Tory government those dipshits are more interested in killing us off than helping us prosper hence the tick box culture jobber
