Roll up, roll up to the marvellous Ponzi scheme. wink Of course you're right - not based in reality.

Any interest at all is a struggle these days sad

I have heard about this on MoneyBox on R4, but it looks like no one cares about it enough to do anything.

Its designed so that you will gradually have to use your savings to top up your benefits until you get below the threshold for your savings to count.

Do they mean that you will pay 20% tax on interest?
