universal credit

epirie Member Posts: 1 Listener
my partner moved up from England last year and had to apply to go onto universal credit. Yesterday he found out (no letter etc) by logging onto his payments that they were deduction £47.67 a month from his benefits because when they put him on to universal credit they made an error and continued to pay him Esa as well. He suffers from epilepsy and is finding this whole thing stressful and is causing him to take seizures. i am appalled that a government agency like that can be so incompetent as to make an error like this. have any of you also experienced this.
