    I have just recieved an appeal against the termination of a claim.

    Basically we have just discovered that they own a static caravan.

    That’s covered by CH/3700/2006 so I can revise the decision.

    However they have been denied PCSC on Capital Grounds, presumably again the caravan.

    I was thinking of advising them to go back to the Pensions Service to query the Capital decision but does anyone know how the (DWP)PC regs work in this area?

    Annual income twenty pounds, annual expenditure nineteen nineteen and six, result happiness. Annual income twenty pounds, annual expenditure twenty pounds ought and six, result misery. The blossom is blighted, the leaf is withered, the god of day goes down upon the dreary scene, and—and in short you are for ever floored.

    Not sure if you have resolved this but if you look at “Capital disregarded for the purpose of calculating income” personal possessions are disregarded under Para 8, sch IV, Part I (Don’t ask me why it’s headed “Capital disregarded for the purpose of calculating income” but it’s obviously capital disregards for PC purposes) so if they have been refused PC purely because of the caravan I Would advise them to appeal in light of CH/3700/2006.
