We have received a Disability Living Allowance for our daughter and I was wondering if we have to report it to our practicioner? The money will be used for therapies, etc for the little one, so itll not increase our monthly butget but I was wondering if it stll has to be reported? Also, are they allowed to increase my monthly payment due to this?
Any help much appreciated.
Unfortunately posters rarely come back to us with any update, so we don't now how any challenge fared.
In any event, it does have to be declared.

As Foggy has said, our son’s DLA was put down as part of our income, however, this was offset against the costs associated with his disabilities. You will have to make it clear that it is your child’s income though but that is easily evidenced with the DLA letters. Also, not sure if you’re aware, but if you receive tax credits, you need to tell them about DLA, any increase to the tax credits due to DLA will then be taken as extra income for the purpose of IVA.
Thanks for all replies.
Twiglet, did you have to get a proof / invoices of costs associated with your sons disabilities? Only reason Im asking is that we are still looking for best solutions and therapies for our daughter, but not completely sure what will be the cost you see...
Thanks in advance.
