    Hi @zane Sorry to read that you're feeling stuck. Did ESA give you a date that you need to have sent your bank statements by? I hope they arrive soon. Citizens Advice are often very helpful, maybe when they ring they can help understand what's going on :)

    I'm sorry that you had to wait for so long. I am so frustrated for you. Can I ask, do you have internet banking? I wonder if you or your partner could print the statements yourself? Just so you don't have to rely on the bank not messing up again. 

    They won't just stop your benefit. They have asked for the bank statements and unfortunately it will be a wait whilst they look through them, but your claim will continue as they look.

    Hopefully your benefits won't be stopped @zane, it seems like they're just doing some checks. Sorry if I've misunderstood you, have you managed to send all the bank statements to the DWP now?

    If the worst happened (very unlikely) and your ESA stopped this will not affect your PIP. They are 2 completely different benefits and PIP isn't means tested like your ESA is. 
    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.

    Hi @zane, sorry you're feeling so stressed out by this, it sounds really difficult. PIP isn't affected by how much you've got in savings, so that shouldn't be stopped even if they're doing bank checks. Was it some DWP back pay that took you over the £6000 savings limit?

    I did advise you that your ESA will not stop because you did say in a previous thread that you don't have more than £16,000. 

    I also advised you that the backdated money that you and your partner received isn't counted towards your savings for 1 year after you received it but you still rang ESA. All this worry and anxiety could have been avoided. 
    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.

    Hi @zane, They won't stop your benefits if you've got less than £16000 in savings. Usually, if you have over £6000 it just means they'll take a certain amount off your benefits each month depending on how much money you've saved, they won't stop it completely. 

    Did you get your DWP backpay quite recently? Was your backpay from your PIP claim?
