Who else has received nonsensical changes in the ESA rates payable letters
In January i relieved the 1st one of these in January and another today
The Feb 2020 letter starts by saying from the Feb 2018 My ESA rate will be £125.55 (2018 rate) then because of a change of money coming in from April 2018 will be 127.15 a week this is because a change in the rates of social sec ben's From April 2019 £128.45 per week then again another change in the rates from April 2020 £130.65 per week ,
Then on the last page how we have worked out your ESA gives the 2018 rates 🙄 And on the older JAN 20 letter with the same title
Start off at Feb 20 with the current rate I'm getting paid then tells me about the change in benefit rates in April 20 and the new rate , so far correct, But on the last page it gives the current rate's and total, when it was supposed to give the NEW rates as from APRIL 20 , Thus wasting paper x2 i did some research and did eventually find the new rates and what will change, the basic rate of £73.10 Is increasing as is the support group component rate & the disability premium
What it should have told me is:
From April 2020 the basic allowance for over 25's will be £74.25, the SG component will increase to £39.20 & the disability income guarantee will be £17.10 giving a total of £130.65 per weekIs see PIP standard rate mobility is increasing by 40pence a week
