Hi, thanks for your question. If she is on contributions-based ESA this will not be impacted by capital she has. DLA is also not means tested. However, if she has capital over £16,000 she will no longer be eligible for housing benefit and unfortunately, given the size of her inheritance this will be impacted. You could consider her inheritance being held on trust or potentially her living in the property but it being in both their names?
I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for your question without a positive rating. Thank you.
