Would appreciate some advice folks.
Client has had PIP award at ERM as part of DWP reassessment of cases following court case.
Award backdated for 3 years and obviously payment of over £9000 paid. This takes them over capital limits due to existing savings.
I know that normally such lump sums are disregarded as savings/capital for 52 weeks.
Is there scope for having this disregard extended for a 3 year period???
Think there are different rules on official error???
