Does anyone have any experience of how to handle savings? We live in a 1 bed housing association bungalow, work 15 hours between us (we're a couple) and save as much money as possible. We have just started getting housing/council tax benefit. We have just found out that we have been left an amount of money in a will which will take us over the savings threshold for benefits (we haven't received the payment yet). Does anyone have experience of this? I'm assuming we whittle away the legacy on rent/council tax until we're poor again.
