Our Facebook Group Head & Neck Cancer Support

If you can’t work because of the effects of your cancer, then you may be able to get a benefit. This depends on your circumstances. It’s important you talk with Work and Income as early as possible so they can advise and help you. If you are not eligible for a benefit, there may be ways Work and Income can still help you financially.

Here are some links to help you:
