|Hello & benefit advice for my Mother in law!


This is my first post and would like to say what a great forum this is, and a happy new year to everyone.

I am looking for some advice, my father in law passed away on the 5th of December 2011 (we are currently battling to get money from his bank the HSBC 'whole other issue').

My mother in law has worked out the she has to pay out 310 pounds a month and recieves 309 pounds a month, and this is without any food or petrol.

Surley this cannot be right, i have advised her that she should go visit the CAB.

Does anyone know of similar cases, and is there any help out there?

And any other advice would be good to.

Regards & Happy new year!!!!!
