A severely ill mother-of-nine killed herself after her benefits were stopped when she missed a health meeting, an inquest heard.
Jodey Whiting’s family are demanding justice, alleging the Department of Work and Pensions were aware of her health issues a week before her death in February 2017.
The 42-year-old had a brain cyst and a curved spine, which left her barely able to walk through the front door of her home in Stockton, County Durham.
Her family blames pressure from the DWP for her death and Jodey’s mum, Joy Dove, is fighting the government in her daughter’s memory.
The Independent Case Examiner (ICE) has accepted Joy’s complaint and will now investigate any alleged wrongdoing.
