For example capital of £6,250 gives monthly tariff income of £4.35.
More detailed information Not all capital is taken into account, some may be disregarded and sometimes claimants may be treated as having capital even if they do not physically have it (notional capital).
Advisers can find the detailed rules about capital in the DWP ADM Chapters H1 (Capital) and H2 (Capital disregards).
Mr Strauss-Kahn’s apparent decision to fight the case echoes an earlier episode where he chose to tackle a legal problem head-on.
In 1999, he resigned as France’s minister of economy and finance, to focus on his defence against an accusation that he backdated documents to justify his consultancy fees for work on a student health insurance fund. A person is guilty of forgery if he makes a false instrument, with the intention that he or another shall use it to induce somebody to accept it as genuine, and by reason of so accepting it to do or not to do some act to his own or any other person’s prejudice.
Tax credits claimants Many current tax credit claimants will be unfamiliar with this rule and the amount of their savings could lift them out of entitlement to Universal Credit.
This is because tax credits do not take into account capital in the same way as means tested benefits.
