Savings over 6k
Hi can anyone give me some advise. I have just received a large cheque for a refund of ppi it takes me over 6k but below 16 k I asked for some advice on another site and was told if I pay debt off and it goes below my assessment period for the month the cheque clears then I will not have to notify uc of the money I just should keep proof that I have used the money to pay debt off and haven't derpived myself of capital. So my assessment period is 12th to 11th of each money my cheque will be cleared by the 7th I will pay all debts like rent arrears council tax arrears water arrears etc on the 7th which will take me below 6k before my monthly assessment period has ended so there will be nothing to report as I won't have saving over 6k by then .is this correct I do not want to do this then get in to trouble
