Hi. My concern is that I am divorcing and making a claim against my wifes L.G.P.S. She is in receipt of this pension and I am claiming a proportion of it but need to know if my disability living allowances are taken into account as income. If it is then this may discount me from making a claim on her pension.
My income at present is £317p.month D.L.A. and £115 p.week e.s.a but by the time this goes to court I will be on state pension which is projected at £153 per week and £15 per week private pension. My wifes income is £9500 p.annum private pension and £138 per week state pension.
Not sure we have been married 22 years. The rules for pip are not the same as for dla. My wife also gets the same amount of dla but her disability is not genuine as mine is so one or both of us may lose it. So I wanted to know if she loses it and I do not will it affect my settlement claim. She is already retired and they are calling in claimants who are retired first from next month I may come after her. I do not retire until February.
