    Pensioner & small inheritance

    Hello to all out there in youreable land. I would like to pop a question regarding receiving a small amount of money (20k) whilst being a married pensioner and getting HB. I could only get a little info regarding savings and being an OAP and HB. What info i got was that, being an OAP entitled you to more savings (10K) before being reduced £1 in every £500 over (10K) for HB purposes. What info i could not find was, would it be classed has having (10K) "each" or, (10K) over the allowance!. Thanks.

    For benefits purposes then as a couple any savings or any income are treated as joint and not seperate.
    I don't know everything. - But I'm good at searching for, and finding, stuff.
