I have a couple of question that I am hoping someone can help with.
Due to my injuries I am unable to carry anything for a distance or stand for any length of time. I need a car to be able to get around. I was hoping I could get a little run around but if I have to pay any remaining monies from my redundancy into the IVA when I get a job then I will not be able to spend any of the redundancy on a cheap used car. Is this something that may be slowed under the circumstances?
Whilst I was off sick I struggled financially due to additional costs like taxis to hospital and holistic treatments. I carried on paying the IVA and did not contact them as I thought I would have to continue paying. Someone has since said that I should have informed them and had a break from payments. Is this something they may now consider after the event and reimburse the payments made whilst off sick?
I would be grateful for any advice-thank you in advance
Kallis's suggestion of trying for motability is a good one and well worth pursuing. Other than that the IP might be able to bend the rules a little, using his discretion. They might say no, but you have nothing to lose by having a chat.

Hi yes I have enquired about this at Citizens Advice Bureau to be told if I can walk 50 metres I would not qualify. This seems unfair as I am in pain, I can’t carry shopping and the exhaustion means I can’t do anything else if I do too much. Very worried about being able to get a new job never mind get to and from a place of work
