This is sounding worryingly familiar Tom. the Uk bennifit laws work very
much the same way, ---- with the nastier restriction that you actually can
only have £6000 in savings or lose the lot, ---- a penny over and everything
pluss, once your off disability bennifit, your off!
On the occasions that relatives have left me money or I've been able to save
extra, I actually have to funnel it into an account my parents hold, sinse
otherwise I'd actually be seriously struggling to ahve enough money even to
buy food, ---- let alone pay my tuition fees.
You also under Uk law cannot legally work more than 16 hours a month and
keep disability bennifits, ---- and you can only work that 16 hours for a
six month period as on the job training.
For this reason my brother is stil! working voluntarily for a law firm
trying to get his salicitor's training contract, ---- because he legally
cannot earn the money without losing his bennifits, ---- and he couldn't
make more than what his bennifits are giving him currently without working
full time, ---- which he cannot do.
And that's aside from the £18000 student lone he stil owes the government
for his five years at university geting a law degree and legal practice
course, ---- which is going up by an extra £1000 a year!
Needless to say, this is also a practical question of disability, which the
deffinition in my thesis is going to address.
Appologies for the slightly off topic wrant, --- just put it down to
inthusiasm about my research!
Beware the grue!
