Hi all, I’m wondering if anyone can give me some advice, I am currently negotiating a repayment plan with my mortgage company and one of the things on the income/expenditure form is income from PIP and one of the outgoings is mobility/disability requirements, talking to mr Google it would appear that any money coming in from PIP would be offset by outgoings for ‘adult care’ etc, has anyone ever experienced this and if so, how did you handle it, I was going to not even declare it as it’s personal but am I wrong? Can they find out I get PIP

Thanks in advance 

Colin

    Hi,
    PIP is there to help you with your day to day struggles; why not put your PIP into the income/expenditure box and then put the same amount into the mobility/disability outgoings?
