I moved from incapcity to esa cont based.when i rang dwp about refund i was told wasnt entitled to any as they transferred me to esa income related in 2014.I have 3 letters they sent me stating i am still on cont based esa so theyre trying to pull wool over our eyes.i have never been on income related so i am due a refund from 2011 to present day.
The benefit cap doesn't apply to those in the Support Group for ESA. The underpayment concerns all those that moved from IB to ESA Support Group. I'm not sure what it was that you read but it's not correct.
Hi i am on esa cont based,i completed the refund form a month ago and posted it .i saw something on the net that dwp are disregarding £5000 of refunded money and then reducing benefits for 12 months only.I cant understand how they can do this as most of the refund is payable from quite a few years before the benefit cap.Also people will only have the refund due to dwp's error
