ESA and ISA
Hi hi I am on CB/sea support group and sent in eas3 forms with bank statements. Got letter back saying Thankyou made copies of your statements looking into your claim. I stated on the phone that I also had an ISA account that my mother put money into for me for dental/vets bills etc. It is under £16000 but above £5,500 at the moment. The account did not open till 2013 and I moved on to ESA in 2012.This Week I had phone call from lady saying they where looking into my claim but she just kept asking me about my savings, even though I have been perfectly honest. I told her I rang dip to check when the Isa was open and they said it was fine if savings are under £16000.I mention this to her and she said oh yes that's ok, but still kept going back and asking me to state my savings, then said you know this call is being recorded. I am now paranoid I have done something wrong.I stated on my phone I had an ISA but I sent current accounts in, because I had to request some more ISA statements from bank. But they have never asked for them. Is she asking because they are going to means test my back pay, I do not know how they can work it out without knowing when my savings went over £5,500. I know I am on CB/sea, so I a, confused
