Are they being genuine or am I being paranoid?
I've recently had a phone call from the DWP asking if, between 2012 and 2015, I had more than £16000 in savings. At the time I was receiving contribution based ESA, having been medically retired in 2010.. They said they wanted to see if at the time I would have been entitled to income based ESA. Maybe I'm a little cynical when it comes to DWP as they don't often call to possibly give you money. Why would it have taken all this time to query this? Are they being genuine or am I being paranoid?
