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

This answer was rated:

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.

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?
