I currently get Disability Living Allowance middle & lower rate £74 pw which is not used in my Income Support Award. I also get Incapacity Benefit at £112.05 pw and a Ill health retirement pension from my ex employers at £85.17 pw.
their figures are .... what i need each week is £196.74 which includes mortgage interest of £23.48 ground rent at 67p and service charges at £10.39. I need £71.70 to live on plus £90.50 for my disabilities
my actual incomings are incapacity benefit £112.05 and my occupational pension which is £85.17
however, by me getting this 31 p too much i loose free prescriptions, dental and orthoptics and also help with travel costs to hospital appts. I also have to pay a £7.02 pw towards my council tax. So as you can see i will have much less than what the law says i need to live on
yes , that is correct, the DLA is not counted in their figures as it is for me to obtain care from agencies etc
I just completed that form .... only to be told it is only for Northern ireland claimants, so therefore doesnt apply to me
It wasn't much help, told me to apply for the benefits i am already claiming! ie, DLA and incapacity benefit.
no it did not
i have requested a refund
