A letter saying he never should have received ESA?
Hi everyone, I've joined the group to try to get advice for my husband. He has been receiving various benefits since he had to leave work after being injured by a car in the late 1990s, when he was aged 46. He received about £250,000 compensation from the driver's insurer at the time so has never been entitled to means tested benefits. I've lost track of the names of all these different benefits, but today he's received a letter saying he shouldn't have been receiving ESA (for several years) because he has over £16,000 savings. He has never hidden his savings so we don't understand what's going on. Can anyone advise us please?
