Motability payment demands
My enhanced rate for mobility was reduced down to standard rate on 05/12/18. I disputed the decision, as the in home assessor frankly lied in her report and reported i can walk unaided over 20 meters. This was totally false. I am a wheelchair user! Anyway, I contacted Motability and told them I was contesting it through the mandatory reconsideration. Today (18.3.19) i received a letter from the DWP stating my enhanced rate has been reinstated. Obviously i was overjoyed at this news and contacted Motability to tell them i would be keeping my car, only to be told that i now owe them almost a thousand pounds! Is this right? Surely its the DWP's responsibility to pay the arrears? I will be in financial mess if i have to pay them this amount of money! The DWP stated they would pay me almost £500 in arrears, but this still leaves me in financial difficulties to pay them. Has anyone ever successfully contested this? Thank you for any advice.
