Having recently (JUNE) been finally awarded my DLA,I have now been informed by our local council that they are claiming my care allowance towards my Housing Benefit.
It seems that this money is to help pay my rent.
There is absolutely no point in going through the stress of claiming any benefits,if the council simply reduce my discretionary housing benefit by exactly the same amount.
I had no idea that this would be the case,or I would never have applied for it.
Being Disabled really has made me a non class resident in this country.
You are forced to justify your existance to the DWP only to have anything they award you taken away.
I absolutely give up even trying to exist anymore,and am having to seriously consider if life is worth living anymore.
Sorry to sound so P***ed off ,but not sure how much more of a kicking I want to be subjected to by the state.
