I'm not sure whether this is in the right place but here goes; I am in the process of going through the recruit stages of TA training. At the moment I am out of work and caring for my disabled wife. We receive benefits in the form of Disability Living Allowance, carer's allowance and Income Support. I have searched ARRSE for something similar and drew a blank. To add to that I have checked the Income Support web pages and rang up the helpline who were not helpful at all! My question has been unanswered by them as they 'are not sure'. Basically, as a TA soldier (recruit or otherwise) does the income from the TA affect our benefits? Before anyone starts on me for being a dole-ite I want to point out I am happy for it to be deducted from the benefits I just don't want to be in court for benefit fraud! As much as I can see on the IS webpage it states that TA pay is classed as 'non-remunerative pay' but this doesn't lead to much explanation! Anyone able to help?
