TOPIC: savings and property

savings and property 1 week 7 hours ago #213903

I'm on Income based ESA and in the support group for two years. Received a letter from DWP requesting my recent bank statements to show how much in savings I have.
My question is, do I have to send them a full bank statement or can I print out and send an account summary which shows how much savings I have in total?
The reason I ask is that I don't see why the DWP should need to see a full breakdown of my spending when I have less than £6,000 in total.

If they have asked for bank statements (plural) then you have to supply them with these.
