I know this isn’t based on any proper understanding of the Law(s) but it does seem strange that one can potentially move around the world collecting disability benefits without the receipt of one having an impact upon the receipt of another. Do INCAP know about this ? If so what is their take on it ? I would have thought that they (as an agency) will have much more understanding of the eligibility criteria.

This leaflet talks about the receipt of both benefits at the same time and the effect of the receipt of US Disability Benefits on the amount of Incap. Looks like incap should be reduced.
