    Based on your other thread you do not have savings of more than £6,000. When you receive the lump sum that DWP owe you will still not have savings of more than £6,000. Therefore you will not get into trouble. 

    Backdated money is still disregarded for housing benefit and council tax reduction. 

    The reason you’ve now been contacted by your local authority is because you reported changes to ESA and they share information with your local Authority.
    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.

    As Poppy has patiently explained several times back-dated money doesn't count.

    In your previous thread when I asked a few times if you had savings of more than £6,000 before you receive what is owed next week, you didn't specifically answer that, other than to say that when you receive the money next week it will take your savings over £6,000.

    I can only give you advice based on the information you give and you keep changing the information. 

    How much backpay did your partner receive and when? 

    As your partner is named on your ESA claim then it's both of your savings that will count towards the £6,000. All the cost of living payments are disregarded indefinitely. Backdated money is disregarded for 1 year from the date you or your partner receive it. 

    I can't really give any further advice other than what I've already advised you several times.

    Hi @zane it's okay unless it goes over 6000. If you went over 6000 because of backpay that doesn't count until 12 months after you got it. So if you got it in November last year it won't count until November this year.

    You will need to make sure you send them what they've asked for, otherwise your ESA could be suspended. 

    I'm sorry I'm unable to give any further advice other than what I've already advised up to now. You will just need to wait for a decision maker from ESA to make a decision, once you've sent what they've asked for. 
    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.

    You can ask your bank to print you statements. Then you will need to ring ESA and ask for the address of where to send it to.
