Pips and esa
My son gets esa and pips At the moment they are paid into my bank account and he has a separate account for small things like magazines ( he is autistic so I am his appointee ) We also set him up with an isa I understand that amount over £6000 is reduced by a certain amount Being stupid I didn’t take into account the balance of his esa that’s in my account would also have to be taken into account so no doubt I will owe them money That’s ok cos it’s my fault what I now want to confirm is if pips is paid into same account as esa will pips be counted as capital and therefore subject to the same rules as esa ?Hope that makes sense
