Please, could someone give me advice on the following... According to all sources I've found (directgov.uk CAB Turn2us) Industrial injuries disablement benefit is non means tested. Which I thought means that it should be paid regardless of income. If you got Incapacity Benefit, Industrial Injuries Benefit wasn't deducted... I understand that ESA took that over.
So my question is this.. If you get ESA does it affect your Industrial injuries benefit and If you get Industrial Injuries benefit will it affect your ESA... (I ask this because I've just been awarded Industrial Injuries Benefit and had 3/4 of it taken away because I get ESA)
Thank you for your help in answering this
