I am now on the high rate for Limited work capability.
I got a message in my journal on the 5th May saying I was owed money.
My payment had went to debt mangerment to see about taking any money I owe them.
How long does it take for them to send the money to the bank.
Been reading a lot of peoples stories and now  am even more confused. Will I actually get it of they have said they owe me.

    Hello @L888CMR

    Welcome to the community, how are you? 

    Have you heard anything further since it went to debt management? That might just be taking a little while. Possibly worth getting in touch to chase things up if it's starting to make you concerned?
