Hi all, has anyone had this happen to them? I have been on incapacity benefit since my accident six years ago, I also got an income support top up in total it didn't add up to much, but for some reason unbeknown to me as my incapacity benefit went up by three pound yippee!! The DWP have now stopped my income support as I am now over the limit for them to pay my top up, now when the letter arrived I get totally confused as it says...... The law says you are allowed £133 and some odd pence to live on but because I get £101 and some odd pence then I am no longer entitled to income support is there anyone who knows what a severely disabled person who has a full time live in carer as I suffer from CRPS/RPS/Fibromyalgia down the whole of my right hand side from neck to foot, even though every time I question this with the DWP they say that my money is correct, I do obviously claim DLA but apparently this is not counted towards my income, my medication alone now costs me £198 per month where as with the small bit of income support I got, it allowed me to get free prescriptions, has anyone got any ideas???
