Do you think they might increase the lower savings limit?
Like we can technically have £6K before it starts affecting our benefits and £5500 before we have to start declaring it. Although in reality this means we need to keep it below £5K so that when we get our DWP payment it doesn't go over the limit. This is such a low amount, especially if you're saving up for something like a treatment or medical device that is not available on the NHS. For some reason persnioners are allowed £10K before it starts affecting their benefits, which seems like unfair age discrimination to me. Do you think this lower limit will be raised? Is anyone interested in writing to their MPs asking for it to be raised?
