Date: Sep-2012
Abstract: The appellant was awarded Income Support from October 1990, which was later superseded to include housing costs from December 1997. In March 2008, a decision was made that the appellant no longer satisfied the conditions of entitlement to income support from 23 October 2003. In March 2010, a second decision was made that the appellant was not entitled to income support from November 2008 on the basis that he had capital in excess of the amount prescribed under Schedule 10 paragraph 8 of the Income Support (General) Regulations (NI) 1987. The Commissioner found that there were two issues that had to be examined, firstly relating to capital disregards between 2003 and 2006 and secondly, whether the appellant could be considered to have capital in excess of the prescribed limits as he may have had a chose in action against Mr. G McK.
