How does yesterdays Autumn statement affect you - personally ?
It doesn't really affect me - I don't pay income tax (too low income) but am pleased that PIP will increase by COL.
I don't receive any means tested benefits due to having savings and don't drive an electric vehicle. I do receive the non-means tested £150 fuel bill reduction

    In all honesty, @Wibbles I haven't heard enough about it. I try to avoid the news, just because it makes me sad. 

    At least, I listen to it in minimal doses! It sounds really positive to hear that it doesn't really affect you and in some ways, you are pleased about it. 

    If anyone else wishes to share their response to this thread please feel free to. I think this will be a really invaluable thread for some people  :)
