The visit from the Department of Work and Pensions took place this afternoon and was relatively painless. The lady took one look at Son 2 and agreed that his disability benefit can continue to be paid into my bank account, no additional legal documentation is needed. I hope the transition will be painless and that they won't stop the next payment (due after his birthday) as the result of technicalities.
She also discussed what other benefits we might be eligible for since Hubby's redundancy, but I think we are already claiming everything we are entitled to, having already taken advice.
In other news, I am now going down with the dreaded cold, the last member of the family to succumb. I had really hoped I would escape it. And tomorrow Son 2 returns to school. Hooray!
