Redress and funds

We were told redress is NOT to be means tested yet the welfare will know and will ask HOW MUCH YOU GOT so you will have to pay for your own hardship fund, it is hardship fund in advance. 

The Redress will give you the same answer.

so much for funds when survivors have to pay for hardship living and use their redress and loose hardship funds main stream society get every year.

Some survivors have used up most of their redress on this fund that was taken from them due to redress.

Redress is seen as sufficient savings end of story.
