    DWP will only be interested once the money hits your bank. Until then, it is a legacy. That's when you inform them. Now STOP WORRYING

    I don't bank online and I want my bank details online.
    It's not safe.

    I don't think that is a good idea to have the money in small amounts. Because I am on benefits.
    And if I receive any money that takes me over the DWP limit my benefits will be stopped.
    Then if the payments stopped coming I would have to apply for benefits again.
    And I would have problems getting my benefits back.

    So it is better for me to wait until my Solicitor gets me my full inheritance.
    My benefits will stop but I will have 118k so I won't have any worries.

    Nothing wrong with online banking, if you take the right precautions you will be safe.

    Exactly, not much in telling DWP months before you get the money.

    Have you registered with your GP?

    Actually this forum has helped me a lot.
    What really panicked me was when the woman in the launderette said the worst scenario is that I won't get my money.

    I've avoided replying n this thread as it would just be repeating what everyone else is saying, however the above is concerning. Please try not to discuss all this with random people. It's really not a good idea.


    Please sort out a GP. Having had support withdrawn two years ago does not mean you would not get any now. The evidence of everything you have posted suggests you would (and you could print this thread to show the GP).
    . . .I did not speak out

    Then they came for me
    And there was no one left
    To speak out for me..

    "I am on ESA, Housing Benefit, Council Tax Benefit and DLA."

    ESA, but no job. DLA, but no need to see a doctor.

    OP there are many people who are on the Autistic Spectrum who are able to work and look after a home etc.

    I am sure if you put some effort into finding a job or volunteering somewhere, you would not have so much time on your hands to worry about your inheritance.

    You will get the money when the time is right, but for now concentrate on finding a job or helping out someone so much worse off than yourself.

    ESA, but no job. DLA, but no need to see a doctor.

    High rate care DLA no less, which is for " Help or supervision throughout both day and night, or you’re terminally ill" Amazing that someone with apsergers who lives alone, goes to the launderette etc. can get that.

    I do not think the remarks about the OP's level of Benefits are either helpful or appropriate. At the moment she is not well. It is not good to kick someone when they are already down.

    I do agree that she needs to register with a GP asap.

    Imagine someone holding forth on biology whose only knowledge of the subject is the Book of British Birds, and you have a rough idea of what it feels like to read Richard Dawkins on theology: Terry Eagleton
