Disability allowance is not a free-for-all benefit
I BELIEVE there has been a lot of talk on TV about Disability Living Allowance (DLA) and other benefits – about how unfair the changes are.
This is especially with regards to carers who have volunteered to give up work to look after a loved one.
Do you expect them to do it for nothing as it saves the NHS millions a year?
So let's get the DLA and DWP in perspective.

Someone applies for the help and fills in the forms and is awarded the amount they get.
They do not get this automatically as there is a lot of paperwork to complete.
One criteria is that you are only allowed a certain amount of savings.
But it is what the Government says you can have.
You just don't get it without the necessary paperwork so this is not a free-for-all benefit.
We know there are unscrupulous people who will tell untruths to the respective departments.
These are the people who want stopping. The genuine people who apply just want to live.
