I have been told the amount I will get in backdated DLA, its on the way and approved, the DWP didnt bother asking for a statement of reasons from the tribunal.

 

I have a new problem that my bank balance as a result of 2 years backdated DLA will be hovering around the £6000 mark it will actually be probably going above and below £6000 over the course of each month as expenses go out and income goes in.

 

I am now very grateful for the reward so I am not too concerned about having my housing benefit deducted for been a bit over £6000, what is bothering me is the potential trouble of informing them every time my money goes above or below 6000 and each time of course the claim been suspended.

 

If I were to say my savings are 6500 and simply dont inform them afterwards until I am well below 6000 again would that be fraud? as that will amount to underpayments not overpayments. So I assume I am ok to do that?

Any backpay of benefits is disregarded (ignored) for 12 months.
