    HI,

    He will need to fill out the form and return it to DWP they will then assess him for the Income related top up. If awarded it will be backdated. It can take 12 weeks or more to be assessed for this because of the backlogs.

    There are only as good as the information you put in them. DWP will contact him if they think he qualifies. There’s 1000s of people being contacted so there’s most likely big backlogs.

    So if i know the info is correct poppy then the results are correct would you agree

    Possibly yes but if he had a transitional protection when he transferred to ESA, if this was more than the Enhanced disability then he won't be eligible for any backdated money. As i said DWP will contact him at some point.

    That amount is CB amount. As i said DWP will contact everyone in time. I'm afraid i can't help you anymore with this, as i've given you all the advice there is.
