The Government acknowledged the full backdating of the
ESA arrears (prior to October 2014) on 18 July 2018.
This meant a further 250,000 cases are to be
reviewed specifically in relation to arrears due prior to October 2014.
This is in addition to the 300,000 they were already looking at for arrears
from October 2014. The DWP have said recently (September) that they are still
on schedule to review the original 300,000 by March 2019. This will include
additional payments to claimants who have already been paid arrears that were
limited to October 2014, with payments expected January-March 2019.
There is currently no timescale for reviewing
the additional 250,000 cases.
Not good news for those waiting for the arrears I am
afraid. You could call ESA but I am doubtful this would make any difference.
