hello. I developed neck problems (Wear and tear on vertebrae) 3 years ago but have persisted work as a taxi driver, working over 30 hours to justify receiving working tax credit.In that time I have been paying for the car and only earning £70 p.w.and have been claiming housing benefit accordingly. The housing asked last month for me to fill in an income and expenditure form and asked how I've been living on so little.I filled in same, showing a deficit of £600 per month and that the deficit has been paid by substantial credit card funds (from owing £6.5k to now £20k) They have now asked me to make a claim for DLA and submit notifications advising them of the outcome by 5th December (days away) . I have looked at the DLA site and see that this is for mobility and care issues which I do not need.Furthermore, I must allow 40 days for them to process it.I have been battling through illness and am working consistently on getting more able, but meanwhile need this housing benefit. Could anybody kindly assist ?
