I didnt they could count dla or pip as income. As i thought it wasnt means tested....i could be wrong tho


Hi tinkerbell66

I sincerely hope that you are feeling as well as you possibly can be today? I am so sorry to read that you have been left with no money, and I genuinely hope that you can find some resolution and relief to this issue.

I have pasted you a general link to the GOV.UK disability benefits site, which hosts links for ESA and PIP. I was under the impression that PIP was a non-tax deductible benefit and therefore not taken into account when adding and compiling incomes, it may well be worth checking up on this status?

I really hope that you can get your benefits sorted soon.
