On new style ESA
hi I recently recieved an upgrade for pip to enhaced for daily living I then approached dwp from adviser advice to claim disability premium only payable if you recieved enhanced pip .I'am in receipt of Contribution Esa also in the support group and do not claim housing or council tax rebate so no income related Esa .I contatced dwp to see when they where going to update my benefit claim to have the £16.80 and to also backdate it ..I recieved a letter stating that as I'am on new style Esa even though I have no correspondence to say so .when was the new style esa intoduced and why do all my letters say Contibution based Esa. To let you understand I had nevermade a claim a for benefit my whole life and was given the total runaround and was even put on universal credit to begin with so whole thing only got sorted out after a whole year of going round the houses in the wrong direction. yours sincerely j
