    I’ve not been disabled for long (1979!), but the £10 Christmas ‘bonus’ remains very scrooge-esk. Why hasn’t that gone up in the last 40 years?

    Mitch,

    I am not sure where you got your figures from, but WPMS will increase by £2.15 to £72.00 per week (was £69.85) from April 2022.

    Plus all War Pensions and Supplementary Allowances will rise by 3.1% – rounded to the nearest 1p.

    Official uprating listing on Gov.uk here:

    I have a feeling you may have been looking at last years 0.5% increase figures?

    This needs to change,when the car contract is signed whatever the rate is at that time is what you should pay Motability for the 3 years or 5 years length of contract.

    Its daylight robery,the DWP should clamp down on Motability,if the rates increase each year over the contract length the claimant should get the extra money not Motability.

    That’s all factored into the 3 year lease, the bigger issue imo is that these benefits are all set at a lower apr than actual inflation and the gap grows every year between the cost of the cars and the allowance we get.

    When i got switched from icb to esa as i got more on icb i get eesa. So I will never have a rise till they on par, which will probally never happen.

    If the scheme was run at a loss how long would it last..We are geting an extra £250 towards our next cars and i just got my £60 rebate due to covid, gcb has gone upto £600 from £200 when i first joined. So they are doing something.

    If you extend your lease and are on pip then you pay the same for a new car as you do a 3yr old one.. That’s something i think needs changing. That’s why personally i will not extend or spend huge amounts on an ap or add extra’s to essentially lease a car. It’s hard to justify it.

    It’s not a £569m profit margin, is it not fund/reserves of £569m of which they buy the cars outright so we can lease them over 3 years. Then they sell them, they gonna take a hit at some point with the switch over to ev’s and restrictions on petrol and diesel cars as values plummet the closer we get to 2030.

    I agree with you about the £10.00 ‘Christmas Bonus’ but did you receive it in December 2021? I’ve been disabled since 2003 and last December was the first time I didn’t get it. My cousin is also on higher rate PIP and she didn’t get it either. We just assumed it was cut because of Covid but maybe not?

    @rachel. Yeah received it 16 December.
    I think I spent it on fast cars, loose women, fine wines and the balance I squandered.

    Had mine on 6/12/21.

    You can’t lose out on this payment after all you could heat your home for 10 minutes with that sort of cash. 😒

    Today received new energy tariffs. I imagine energy performance certificates will be read by potential homebuyers with much more attention and interest nowadays. Our annual bill will be around 2k, for a modest well insulated house. Our previous property with solid walls less insulation would be around 4.5k. Crazy.
