Finally DWP admitted errors and have apologised but.....
I have no idea if I'm right sub forum or even if this the website to ask.
In short I was signed off sick in June 2018. For multiple reasons I wasnt paid ongoing UC (I had been in receipt of job seeking payments under UC no break in payments) and finally in January 2019 I was profusely apologised to with DWP admitting multiple failures and was paid for the complete missing months........ Because I was now under under sickness umbrella was sent off (finally) for assessment start of this month (big back log my area) and was immediately within 48 hours receiving a journal entry of unfit for work you're entitled to higher rate etc etc.
Now the reality is that the assessment should have been undertaken clearly in summer of last year not april of this year....Am I entitled to the arrears from June 2018 until current date and ongoing obviously ?? The sick notes are obviously from June 2018
If I am I havent been paid it
