    It is a much lower rate of NI to reflex the lower sickness cover. But do check with a benifit advisor as a broken wrist may be covered. The other option is to sign on as unemployed saying you are giving up labouring.

    Also look at housing benefit.

    Best go to your local citizens advice office where you will get advised as to what you can claim.
