    We have a claim where the cusotme rhas a speraret bank account set up for the Direct Payments funding for their disabled son but some of the transactions don’t appear to be paying for care including the tranfer of monies to another account they hold.

    If the money isn’t being used for care, can it stil be disregarded?

    Hi Craig,

    We had this scenario ourselves last year and both the income and any associated capital is disregarded, however, we informed the county council paying the direct payments that the money was not being spent and they recovered the unused money from the claimant and adjusted the amount of the care package going forwards.

    Thank you for your reply, we have disregarded it but I wanted to be sure.
