  2. Hi Quelle surprise!! £186.00 in my account today thank goodness. Many thanks for your help Margaret. Yes I was on CB IB before being transferred to CB ESA. I can't work out if I am a day owing will look into that. Just reconfirmation should have received payment 24/01/14 so next scheduled payment should be 07/02/14. Many thanks to everybody.
  3. Hi Yet another phone call today they have said £186.00 will be paid tomorrow. So looks as though IB ESA awarded. Should it be at the same amount as CB ESA.Watch this space. Can anybody shed any light on how they have arrived at this figure. CB ESA ended 11/01/14 was receiving £105.05 fortnightly. Received last payment 10/01/14. So was due next payment 24/01/14. If they pay tomorrow can I assume payments will recommence in line with when I should have been paid last ie next payment 7/02/14. Sorry for the questions I just don't want to have to call them again unless I have to.It en

  8. Applied by eas3 for ib esa which should be entitled to as no partner or savings. Not heard anything. Who do I ring to chase up? No money direct debits due beginning next month no overdraft facility due to debt probs. Is there anybody I can apply to for a crisis loan? Thank you.
  9. Work have advised that the final pay out will be based on the p/t hrs i was working at the time of illness. Is this right or should it be based on my original f/t employment contract.
  10. So in essence they are obliged to pay me 8weeks notice pay and all accrued holiday pay?
  11. Yes employed for 8yrs. But have been on long term sick for some time. Does this make a difference to the notice period?
  12. Thanks for that. In the letter i have received it states i will be paid your notice period of one month. Is this wrong?
  13. Employment terminated on grounds of work capability due to long term ill health. Employed 8yrs f/t. When signed off I was only working p/t 20hrs 5 days p/w.(This was because I had had a previous period of sickness where i had been allowed a phased return to work thus building up to 20hrs p/w) My questions are : Am i right in thinking that i am entitled to all holiday pay accrued during my absence plus one months pay in lieu of notice.
