    Hi @mumma and a warm welcome to the community. I don't have the answer to your question myself, but it is probable that some of our members and specialists will be able to help. Things tend to be a little quiet at this time of day, however, so if you'll bear with us I'm sure people will respond in due course.
    Warmest best wishes to you

    This is not correct. The Upper Tribunal have not ordered DWP to repay anyone any money they lost when they transferred to UC because of a change in circumstances.

    DWP did announce in June that they were going to pay money to those that lost the SDP because of claiming UC but no further announcements have been made regarding this. You'll need to wait until another announcement has been made. Until then there's nothing anyone can do.
