    No one can possibly answer your question without knowing all of your circumstances. You'll have to wait to be contacted, fill out the form and return it and then wait for DWP to make a decision. This is the only way you'll know.

    I received a letter last week with a form to fill in for Feb 2013 to Feb 2014. It was a form specific for that timescale which asked about what savings I had or what other money I had coming in my living circumstances and any kids, spouce etc. I don't know why they need this as they should already have the info. I've posted it back so it's just a waiting game now to see what If anything I may receive. Apparently anyone who is effected by the shortfall is being contacted..it was due to have been resolved by now, but with a review making packdated payments from earlier dates than the government first said it was going to, it's taking longer and there are more to be contacted. So hang tight.
