I have to show 3 years of bank statements to a DWP Local

Customer Question

I have to show 3 years of bank statements to a DWP Local Compliance Officer. I live with my grandmother and I once gave her £10000 for my living expenses (I've been living with her since November 2003). Will they accuse me of deprivation of capital?

I'm really sorry but they probably will.

Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

There is no real way of softening it. They are likely to think this is deprivation of capital.

Regular payments of maintenance amounts would be one thing. A large payment of £10k is another.

I'm very sorry but if they find it that is likely to be their view.

Can I clarify anything for you?

But what happens if they can't ultimately prove deprivation of capital?
