Hi there. Based on the information provided, what he claims/plans to claim is all he would be entitled to. But the world of benefits is rather complex and there isn't sufficient information in your post to give definite advise. You might want to try the calculator here. Just enter his circumstances, income and capital and it will give you a rough guide of what he may be entitled to.


Some people with disabilities can also apply for a range of funds from independent charities, this may also be worth looking into if ever he needs items for or as a result of his disability which are unaffordable and not covered by the NHS.

My advice is based on my opinion, my experience and my education. I do not profess to be an expert in any given field. If requested, I will provide a link where possible to relevant legislation or guidance, so that advice provided can be confirmed and I do encourage others to follow those links for their own peace of mind. Sometimes my advice is not what people necesserily want to hear, but I will advise on facts as I know them - although it may not be what a person wants to hear it helps to know where you stand. Advice on the internet should never be a substitute for advice from your own legal professional with full knowledge of your individual case.



Please do not seek, offer or produce advice on a consumer issue via private message; it is against

forum rules to advise via private message, therefore pm's requesting private advice will not receive a response.
