Personal Injury Payment
in Disability money matters
4 replies 175 views
Hi, I'm on ESA support group and full PIP. I was in a really bad car accident. An eldery man disreguarded a junction and came straight into a 60pmh road and basically T-boned me when I was driving at speed. I was trapped in car etc. They're talking about a 5 figure payment. I know about a personal injury trust but was reading the first payment gets disreguarded for 52 weeks. Am I correct in thinking if I get 10k, spend 5k on stuff within that 52 weeks, I'll be below the 6k threshold and won't need to make a trust? Thanks

So, could I keep say 4k in my account and put 6k in the trust or does it all need to go in?
Thanks, I'll probably have to get some specialist help when I receive the payout.
