Can anyone tell me what happens if i receive compensation for more than £6000 but will pay numerous debts immediately out of the amount probably bringing it to under £6,000.Will i be asked to explain what i spent the money on or will they automatically cut the benefit accordingly?I am a carer for my husband and had a car accident.He receives DLA and now ESA.i have been ill too for a decade plus but our benefits advisor said i wouldnt get dla for me and carers so i have never applied now with both our health detiorating its very hard.Dont know how the PIP will affect us.?!Never had any money before scrimped all my life.dont smoke dont drink dont go out live on a budget and smart price!! Would just be nice to be allowed to have some money and spend it without counting every penny as you go round the shop!!You can never tell whats around the corner!I never envisaged being on benefits never mind 10 years plus!!I worked for 20 years plus and had several jobs and certainly wasnt work shy its so wrong everyone gets labelled as scroungers its so not the case!Moan over!!!
