I think if that were the case the sisters would have convinced the Mom to either not include the OP in the will or sign at least a portion of the house over to them at some point. The £77K in cash would be stashed somewhere as well.

I am getting my full benefits including the High rate Of Care DLA.
So I get £290 a week plus most of my rent and Council Tax Paid.
All I pay is £29 a month rent and £14 a month Council tax.
So I am one of the more fortunate ones in that I am not starving and living of £50 jobseekers like some people are.

There is one thing that is worrying me about all of this.
I search the Net today and found these alarming posts about the DWP finding out that people have inherited their mum or dad's estate in their will.
And the DWP have demanded re payments as a result.
See these posts I found here:http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=4046333&page=2#topofpagehttp://www.legalbeagles.info/forums/showthread.php?32937-DWP-Recovery-from-Estates
My mothers will is both a legal will and public property.
Meaning anyone including the DWP can find out about it if they want to.
So I am worried that if my problem getting my inheritace goes on for months or even years as it could do- If the DWP find out athat I have inherited a third of my mothers estate but have not got my money(which is from no fault of my own) can the DWP stop my benefits?
I am very worried about this since my mother's house is now sold.
And am suposed to be paid my money by the executors my sisters, but I have not beenbecause either my sisterrs are deliberatly refusing to pay it or it cannot be paid to me for the reason I mentioned in my first post.My question is if my problem getting my inheritance goes on for months or even years and the DWP find out about mum's will and that she left money from her estate to me?
Can the DWP stop my benefits even though I have not got my money and have no means of getting it, which I haven't?
