    Hey there @bruno12, I can see why you're confused, that's a lot of math!

    To cut a long story short, it looks like the DWP owes you £221.34 from underpaying you previously and you'll receive that money on December 18th. :)

    Hey, that seems low as I’ve only received one payment from them for LCWRA

    I see from a previous thread here https://forum.scope.org.uk/discussion/112022/esa-lcwra#latest that you’re claiming New style ESA and UC. 

    When claiming New style ESA and UC at the same time then the ESA is deducted in full from any UC entitlement. 

    When you were found to have LCWRA it would have also meant the Support Group for ESA. The ESA increases from the 14th week but the deduction also increases. 

    Looks like they owe you £221.34 but it would be impossible for anyone here to calculate whether that’s correct because we would need to know the exact figures for both benefits. If you want to know if the underpayment is correct then you would need to speak to an advice agency near you. 
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
