    Hello @Marble Pleased to meet you welcome.

    Sorry you are having a bad time. I hope we can as a community support you.

    I do not know the answer to your question. The benefit system is complex and confusing.

    May I add some one from our community will know.  Member of our team might advise also.

    Could be worth contacting CAB they have a lot of benefit knowledge. Other information as well.  You might need.

    Have you seen our benefit advice . Plenty of information, advice and from our members comments and useful knowledge.

    We are a friendly community who are supportive.  Care and share.

    Ask the community anything. Some one will know. 

    Please take care
