Our Christmas & New Year Wishes

The Asbestos Victims Support Groups’ Forum is hoping that Christmas and the New Year bring justice for victims of Asbestosis & Pleural Thickening. We should like Father Christmas to deliver two things.
  1. The backlog of claims for Industrial Injuries Disablement Benefit needs to be processed quickly and efficiently.
  2. We need an assurance from the Department of Work and Pensions that the delays so far – and in the future – don’t mean claimants will miss out on compensation from the government’s Lump Sum payment scheme.
