    We have a claim from a 60+ who has been awarded £35k from what we think is a personal injury claim. The capital has been deposited in a bank account not a trust fund.
    para 17 (1) of Sch 6 of the HB Pensioner Regs 06 seems to suggest that this is now disregarded in full. Is this correct?


    If it is confirmed that it is a personal injury payment then yes, it is fully disregarded.


    I thought this only disregarded any income received from an injury payment, not the capital itself, after reading A21/2005 / SI2005 2894?

    If payment made in one lump sum direct into private account, not sure if any disregard, and take into account as capital in full?

    There again might be totally wrong!


    The schedule quoted by twill is to do with disregarded capital and says that we should disregard:

    [i:70e137e889]An amount equal to the amount of any payment made in consequence of any personal injury to the claimant or, if the claimant has a partner, to the partner[/i:70e137e889]

    ‘Any payment’ would include a lump sum, I think.
