  1. Don't you worry about burglars?
  2. I thought they would just adjust my payments accordingly.
  3. Thanks. So does that mean for now I don't need to inform them I have gone over the threshold as it has only been a couple of months?
  4. Thanks for the replies. The money is from benefit payments being saved. Does that mean I can save it? Sorry a little confused what you mean.
  5. Thanks again. I am concerned that at a later date they might ask why I spent it-dispersal of funds or something. Just don't know what is allowed and whats not.
  6. Thanks Andy. Should I phone DWP or just send them a letter?
  7. Hi I am on ESA and PIP. My savings have just gone over the £6000 threshold in the last couple of months. Is it best to phone DWP or should I write to them please? This is causing me great anxiety as I feel like I have done something wrong. I am very thrifty so hardly spend any money preferring to save it as it makes me feel safe to know it is in the bank. I am a very insecure person with lots of struggles with mental health searching for some sort of security. Please advise-thank you.
  8. I contacted them today, they said a form IS10 had been sent out last week but being as I had called might as well complete the form now online. Hopefully I will hear in the next week or so..
  9. Thanks. Will the form be sent to me or do I need to ask for it?
  10. Hi I am in ESA support group and have just been awarded PIP last week. I live alone and no one claims carers allowance for me so I believe I am entitled to SDP. On the Gov website it says you don't need to apply as it will be added automatically. My question is does this actually happen?
  11. How ridiculous. I hope it is not as bad as you fear and that they don't make to many unrealistic demands on you.
  12. I have been reading this and it reminded me of way back in 2009 when I was placed in a work programme. I had been unemployed about a year and up until then I had been working in the same job for 15 years but left due to ill health, applied for ESA which was refused and naively did as I was told. i was in survival mode and if they said jump I jumped much to the detriment of my own health. I had to be at this place for 30 hours a week, sign in and out for 3 months. It was horrendous, or at the very least ridiculous. We had to job search for 6 hours a day but because of the volume of people you would wait hours just to get on a computer so would sit there doing nothing. I had a computer at home that I could of been using but was not allowed to leave even though I was just sitting there. We were lucky if we got access to a PC for an hour in our 6 hour day. I actually felt like a prisoner. To this day I still can't believe that we all, like sheep went along with this nonsense. From what I have read here it does seem to of improved slightly but still seems to be paying people to find unemployable people a job which they are unable to do and sanctioning them if they don't conform.
  13. I am relieved to say that I got my letter today and I have been put back in the SG ESA. I hope this post helps someone, sometimes you are given the right help without the need for MR or Appeals. I have found the whole process so difficult but I had a good and fair outcome.
  14. Thank you Bazooka Boo. I have just called them and made a claim.
