Re: ESA Overpayment
Thanks honeybee. I have asked for a review and written details. Awaiting their reply.
Thanks a lot Nystagmite, I now know how they have got it so wrong!
Thanks leemack. Yes the annual pension is clearly and unambiguously on the the statement they received. I quote "Your annual Pension will be - 2010/2011" followed by the amount. Below that is a table of details of April's pension. Woking backwards it appears they have taken the monthly pension for April as the basis of their calculation. Not factoring in that this refers to a one off of three weeks at the new rate and one at the previous year's (lower) rate; due to the payment date being the 24th of each month).
I have contacted citizens advice and have an appointment for Tuesday next. At the screening interview I was told that I should appeal and that they would help next week.
Thanks to everyone else who has read this thread, but felt unable to advise. The above advice has been invaluable as I now know how there error was made. Thanks again.
I am most grateful you all took the time.
