I receive employment an support allows an have done this 2013 which replaced   My Incapacity benefit .. there as been no changes b4 or after the swap over .. I’m a single parent with 2 children an have been on benefits for 20 yrs (also get high rate dla) two weeks ago I received a letter saying they could owe me money from 23rd July 2013 an give me a booklet to fill in an send back .. I’m still waiting to hear back, it’s only been 3 weeks since sending the forms back so could be a while until I hear anything about it ... I’ve read Afew post on ere an bit online some have had a payment for 1000’s ! 20 even then some for 5 .. to be honest I don’t really understand it all ahah!! If I’m owed money then bonus! Because if we owed dwp owed they would be **** HOT !! At wanting it back .. for example I asked for a budgeting loan beginning of last year for SIX HUNDRED POUND which they said I could have by paying back £40 awk which I think is a lot when you get fortnightly pay £80 ... I think about 2 weeks after the loan boom! My money went down to pay them back ... all I wanted to know is if anyone as gone threw my silmar situation?
