benefits advice?

was recently diagnosed with BC - any one know the best place to go to try and find out how much i will actually have to live on if i’m off sick. I work at the moment but will only qualify for basic ssp as my lovely employer ( a super rich care industry provider) doesn’t pay anything more than that? will i keep tax credits if i’m sick . Am scared to death i’ll lose my house.

I have no idea how much u get in benefits. I was told once I started my treatment my breast care nurse would help me and also Maggies and Macmillan have support in this field
I’m scared of losing my home too just wanted to let u no ur not alone xxx
