    Esa and inheritance

    I maybe coming into some inheritance. My Nan passed away and left my mum money and now my mum is going to pass £17,000 to me. I know I will lose my esa etc but does anyone know what I have to provide to the DWP by way of evidence of this money.

    Has anyone been in same situation

    Thank you

    You will need to inform them then ask what evidence they require, probably bank statements going back 3 months, of course your sea will be reinstated once you have less than 16k but at a rate reduced by £1 for every £250 over 6k

    Presumably this is the same Nan who owed money out of her estate to the DWP that you asked about last month?
    Has that all been sorted out now?

    And wasn't your husband going back to work?

    I'm sorry but I'm finding your current situation hard to follow from your previous posts.
    You say that you were awarded support group, but it's not clear if this is CB or IR (you say both in different threads).

    If you ESA is CB then it should not be affected by this inheritance, if your ESA is IR then it will be.
    I'm intelligent enough to know that I don't know everything.
    But I'm good at searching for, and finding, stuff.

    Yes DWP sorted and Nan owes nothing.

    Husband will not be returning to wrk quite yet if we get this money.

    We get income related esa. The CB I was referring to was child benefit

    Thanks for replies

    If your mother makes a gift like that make sure you don't end up paying gift tax.

    Why pass £17k to you? Why not a less amount so you are under the £16k limit.
