I was on incapacity benefit back in 1999 to 2001 where just before my oldest was leaving school I was getting just over 170 per week with full housing benefit, free prescripitions, free dental and I was running a car. I must admit, I did not want to go back to work but had to after the oldest left school resulting in a 40 cut in benefit the presssure was on. I wonder how much I would get today if I was in the same position. However, I did bluff my way into a good paid Social Work post.
