I have been awarded a Service Invaliding (SIP) and a War

Resolved Question:

Hi, I have been awarded a Service Invaliding (SIP) and a War Pension, can the CSA use this as part of my earnings. I also work full time for the NHS, but I'm happy to pay maintenance through this income (even though he is 18).

HiThank you for your questionMy name is ***** ***** do my best to help you but I need some further informtaion firstWhen was the first CSA assessment made?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hi Clare, I'm still on the old assessment a the moment (assessed 2001). However, I'm about to leave the CSA as it is now. My question will be relevant to the new guidelines, as I will be re-assessed in September 2016. Having said that, it will be beneficial to get an answer on both assessments. Thanks in advance, Mark

Just to check - is this a War Disablement pension that you are receiving?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hi, I receive both a War Disablement Pension and a Service Invaliding Pension (SIP).
Expert:  Clare replied 1 year ago.
In that case you are automatically entitled to a Flat rate assessment - which your ex would then have to apply to vary based on your NHS incomeI am told that in order to honour the Intention the reassessment will ignore the Income from the Pensions since it is clear that it was intended that these monies should be exempt.I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further detailsClare

Hi Clare,
Thanks for your reply, it certainly helps. Have you got any references i.e. which I can quote when I go back to the CSA?
