    Claimant has received a Charitable Payment. I am satisfied that this is disregarded income. However, the question I have is whether the lump sum is disregarded as capital, because the claimant is of Pensionable age. I have searched the guidance books and regulations, but I cannot find a definitve answer as to whether the income that sits in a bank account as capital is itself disregarded. Secondly, how long does that disregard apply for? The crunch is that with the cpaital in the bank the claimant is over £16,000.00, with it disregarded, the claimant will be below £16,000.00.
