Re: do i have to pay for glasses unemployed

Sorry to hear about your redundancy. It does come as a shock and I know because it happened to me several years ago.
If you are on a 25-year severance package, the chances are that you are still subject to the same NHS cover as if you were employed - for a period of time governed by employment law. In the UK, the best place for you to ask this question is at the Citizens Advice Bureau.
If you sign on at your local Job Centre, they will continue to make your national insurance contributions but the point at which you can sign on will depend on the terms of your severance package.
Please bear in mind that this is a US-based site and that the majority of participants have no knowledge of UK NHS regulations.
Try not to be bitter about your redundancy. With a positive attitude, you will get over it. Good luck.
