He's in the home under the nursing nor residential. .
He resides in Merseyside, so finance lady is wrong and DWP is right.
He will get the FnC funding directly paid to home he has to make a contribution from his benefit of around £270.
So I guess council/ss is paying rest.
In fact the letter doesn't say what there paying .. :roll:
But the finance assistance has clearly told me it should stop.
So she hasn't took this into consideration and told me to inform DWP...
Confused :P
Hi He got DLA before retirement age,I called the DWP to inform them of hI'm going into a Nursing home and they said while he was getting FNC then this DLA won't be stopped. And only if he gets CHC then this will stop. He also said that if you wish to attain the higher rate then you can get your DLA ...
Hi I have been informed at the assessment that he shouldn't claim Attendance allowance and to tell DWP. He doesn't get AA he get DLA,is this same ? I have called DWP prior to assessment whom have informed me that as we get FNC he will still get DLA is this right or is the finance assistance right? :...
