Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Do you have any other savings please?
Ok. Then you don't need to worry. You can have up to £16,000 in savings without it effecting benefit.
The PPI are monies you have already paid, so it's not income. It's savings.
Can I clairfy anything for you about this today please?
You should have declared it, but it would not have made any difference.
It's not income as you are only receiving a refund of PPI which you must have already paid.
You can't get income for something which is a refund
Does that clairfy? Alex
No. It wouldnt have made any difference, so you dont need to worry.
Does that clarify? Alex
