Hi, I’m Lea and I will be assisting you with your query today.
Have your savings exceeded £16000? Or are they over £6000?
The following is useful info to assist you with the site:
If you have £8000 in total you are obligated to inform the housing benefit of this. They will reduce your benefits entitlement accordingly as the maximum savings you can have is £6000. They make no distinction between the money you put in and interest.
When you contact them they can tell you by how much your benefit will be affected by the savings you have over £6000.
You're very welcome.
All the best.
