Regular Payments

RSISolutionsRSISolutions Member Posts: 113 Courageous
I am on ESA in the support group income based. Someone wants to begin to make regular payments into my account to pay for medical and other living expenses. If I don't need to pay the payments back and they don't give me savings of more that £6000 they should not affect my benefits. 

Do I need to state

1. what the payments are for 
2. who the payments are from?

When do the payments become regular payments?
After how many payments?

    Hi there - I think we have gone into this in the other thread where you posted the same question.
    It's a good idea to state who the payments are from and what they are for - this helps to show that they are voluntary/charitable.
