There is a possibility that being awarded damages in a personal injury claim could affect the benefits you receive.

Some monies will need to be paid back, for example, if you were awarded past loss of earnings, but had also been in receipt of Incapacity Benefit then the amount of Incapacity Benefit you received would need to be repaid. For further information see our Recoverable Benefits page.

Damages received for your pain and suffering are ring fenced so that they are protected from any recoupment for state benefits. The amount of these damages can however affect your future entitlement to certain benefits if they are means tested benefits.

In some circumstances we may advise you to set up a Personal Injury Trust as this would protect your position in respect of any means tested benefits.
