I take that back, apparently i'm wrong about savings. I was sure my letters have always stated that if you have over a certain amount you should declare it, but apparently i'm wrong,.

yes, I think its one of the only benefits not to have a saving's clause with it.

a couple won the lottery but refused to give up their free mobility car!, so its swings and roundabout's.

Yeah Sherriff we deal with alot of DLA claims in the school I work in so as CH says you have qualify for the higher DLA amount which would then make you eligible for a car. It is not means tested. It was the suggestion that people actually decided to claim their children were autistic to get a free car that annoyed me. Trust me no right minded loving parent would want their child to be on the level of the autistic spectrum that entitles you to a free car.

I know, having a child or young adult needing that level of care, it makes you think about what those parents are going thru.

my daughter has autism but was not diagnosed until she was sixteen so I know what im talking about when it comes to this subject

Oh, apologies, I forgot that you had to read a quantum physics book and never go to parties to be diagnosed with any form of Autism.

It's not like everyone is different is it.
