My husband received a letter from the DWP in April 2019 saying he may be owed money from 2013 for ESA payments. He was told in April that it could take up to 12 weeks for a decision which would take him up to the 17th July. He phoned them yesterday for an update & has now been told that the wrong information was given to everyone & it’s now twelve weeks from the date they assess your paperwork which was only done on the 2nd of July. So now he has to wait until the end of September for an answer. Has anybody else been given this information as I’ve spoken to other people & they’ve told me they’re cases were resolved within twelve weeks of them returning the paperwork. Has anyone else been informed of this new ruling? Thanks Lynette
