The Shame of Ireland
My wife and I have fallen foul of the Bedroom Tax, this is despite the fact that the Council House that we live in has been adapted due to my wife’s medical needs.
This means that she should have been eligible for a “Discretionary Housing Payment” to make up the Shortfall in the rent.
The reason for this I because she received a “Personal Injury Payment” from the Irish Residential Institutions Redress Board.
The money was immediately placed in a “Trust Fund” for my wife’s “Special Needs”.
This was done to protect access to UK Benefits, ie. Housing Benefit, Council Tax, and other Social Security Benefits.
I am currently waiting for a “Review of the Decision”.
I you have any questions on this or the Nature of a “Trust Fund” Pleae ask and I will do my best to answer. Bearing in mind I am neither a Solicitor of Accountant.
