Oh no, not another IB to ESA query!

Thank you for allowing me to join your forum.

I am one of the many who was sent an IB3 form last year asking for info between April 2012 and May 2016. I was only claiming IB, and wasn't claiming DLA etc. But, I was living alone, no other income, no savings and with an existing claim for HB and CTR.

My question is, do I need to have been claiming other qualifying benefits to qualify for the underpayment, or was being placed incorrectly in the CB ESA instead of IR enough?

Thank you
