I have just been reading about the DWP backpay for those who were not awarded ESA Income related topup on their ESA contribution related. I too have been sent a form and need to get it in by Saturday but I am confused over the savings thing. I did not go over the amount stated until this year when I was awarded PIP and got a large back payment into my account, which sent it over the amount they state , it having never been over that in the entire time they ask for information from, in my case 2012. Yet in the proof of savings they only ask for the last bank statement. So this shows im over the amount, yet for the majority of that time previous I was not. I can;t now (I've left it late partly as I did not at first realise the form was asking for information for so far back) get the bank statements in time for all those years to enclose with the form, only copies of the current one, so am not sure what to do. Does anyone know. I wanted to get it off today but am so unsure am leaving it till tomorrow and hoping thats not too late - has to be there by Saturday. Do I just sent the current one as asked and say actually it's not been over for most of the historical period, but that I cant send the bank details at present, or what? Sorry in bit of a panic, been trying to get them on the phone and no one has answered for over half an hour. Thanks
