    Hi,

    That tells me you were claiming the Income related amounts because those amounts include the Enhanced disability premium.

    So my award with premiums I was entitled to would have been correct at this time sorry I'm just sooo confused about whether I am due the backpayments my anxiety levels are through the roof so sorry if I've misunderstood do appreciate you're help thank you

    Yes, those amounts include the Enhanced disability premium. If you did transfer from Incapacity benefit to ESA then you will still need to wait for DWP to make a decision.

    It means that you may not be owed any money but as i advised you will need to wait for DWP to make a decision.

    @Mazzaberry74 i didn't realise you had previously posted a question regarding this. I help a lot of people on the forum and it's impossible to remember each individual person.

    Based on the information you previously gave and the pictures above DWP do not owe you any backdated money for the IB to ESA underpayment because you were receiving the correct money.  Hope this helps.
