Sorry for the delay. Which benefits do you claim?
Ok. And what is the sum of your capital?
yes, but how much was received?
Ok. But how much is it likely to be?
Thanks. Are you asking if you have to declare?
Not really anymore. It used to be possible to set up trusts to avoid the money being relevant but that has been removed now.
if the money passes though your control at all then it will have to be declared. Unfortunately it is over the cut off point and you are claiming means tested benefits. Disability living allowance should not be affected but the others would unfortunately.
Sorry but that is a reality.
Can I clarify anything for you?
