So, if someone received back pay for such a long time, would they then lose money from their weekly benefits because, in theory, they then have over the amount of savings they are allowed? A


Back payments for benefits are usually disregarded as capital for 52 weeks and even indefinitely, depending on the amount.

I'm a bit confused. I've been reading up about caters allowance/premium. Am I entitled to claim, even though I live alone? Thanks


All posts are held in a moderation area until a Moderator releases them into the forum. I'm the only Mod on today and so it is taken some time for posts to appear.

You cannot Claim Carers Allowance for your self, only someone else with a qualifying benefit.

You can claim the Severe Disability Premium if you live alone and receive an Income Related benefit such as ESA, Income Support or Pension Credit.

Hi c50,

Great News !!! :cheer:

I am really pleased for you and thanks for your comments regarding B&W !! :)

You PIP Daily Living Award may also give you entitlement to payment of The SDP as advised by Gordon, and if your Standard PIP Mobility award was given for your walking limitations "Moving Around" that entitles you to a Blue Badge and a 50% reduction in Car Road Tax :

See : Here. and just over half way down : This Page.

Under the heading : Vehicle tax reduction.

on the award letter re pip, it states if you were getting road tax for a vehicle as a result of receiving higher rate mobility on dla, then if you get awarded standard rate mobility on pip, you have to return the road tax. Nowhere does it state that you qualify for 50% discount. If it hadn't been for this site, I wouldn't have known that. 6 months is better than nothing. Dwp are being deliberately vague now in what you can claim. I just want to smash ids and Osborne and Cameron's races in when they bleat on how the disabled are protected. Just s Tory lie.
