    What advice would you like? All I can see is that they owed you some money and they will pay £555.88 into your bank.

    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.

    What were you awarded? Sorry but it’s impossible to advise because you haven’t given enough of information.

    Revised statements mean they have recalculated them.

    If they say they owe it then it must be correct. I'm sorry I can't be any more specific than that. Although that was rather a long time for them to realise they owed you money.

    They wouldn't just access your bank account. They would be able to look back at your statements on your journal to see what you were paid over those months.

    I have no idea how after all this time they realised you were underpaid. This isn't something I can advise on because you haven't given any information. If you want further advice you will need to speak to an advice agency. By doing this you can show them your past statements so they can look at them.

    Reading your first comment again it seems like it's for the work allowance that they didn't pay you for at the time because either yourself or a partner were receiving earnings at that time and you didn't previously have the work allowance.

    Again, I would need so much more information from you before I can see if it''s correct and that just isn't possible on an internet forum. I would be here forever and that's just not possible. There's only so much advice an Internet forum can give.

    When I advised you to get some advice from an agency I didn't mean to ring the UC helpline. They are not benefits advisors. This link will help you find an advice agency local to you. https://advicelocal.uk/welfare-benefits

    You’re entitled to the work allowance if you either have children on your claim or you have LCW/LCWRA.

    If there were no children on your claim before you were found to have LCWRA then it will apply from the assessment period in which you provided your first fit note.
