Disabled ex serviceman to be made homless by the CSA

January 24, 2011

I was disabled when in the Army and awarded a war disablement pension, which I have received along with incapacity benefit. For 15 years I paid the basic flat rate to the CSA. However 18 months ago the wap pensions acknowledged that I would never be able to work again and took over the payment of the incapacity benefit, as part of my war pension it is called the unemployability supplement. However the csa has decided that as I no longer receive incapacity benefit the maintenance due has been reassessed and increase by a sum 18 times more than I was paying previously, even though my income has not increased!

This is despite the csa website and their leaflet printing stating that those receiving war disablement pensions pay the same basic flat rate as those on incapacity benefit.

This 1700% increase in child support payable will now make me bankrupt, so within 3 months I will be homeless!!

Just another disabled ex serviceman on the streets.

    This is disgraceful what type of people are they.

    Just to let you know my ex partner lost his house recently to these F****** he will be homeless shortly and no job.

    They dont care what they do to people and will not allow Fathers to get on with their lives.

    His ex wife is on benefits and has a Son from a previous relationship serving time in prison for killing a man FOR MONEY! So while her jailbird son sits in his comfortable cell my ex partner is homeless. I have no doubt her Son was treated better then all the men hastled on the website.

    Remember the CSA didn’t make the rules, the Government did. You need to take this up with you MP if you want it changed.
