  1. Hi All New to this forum and trust that i'm posting in the right area? I was assessed and awarded Incapacity Benefit in late 1999 / Early 2000. On receiving my reduced and early occupational pension in April 2002 at aged 50 I read and noted that my occupation pension was not taken into account because my Incapacity Benefit had started before 2001. I did check this with the benefits office and was told this was correct. On moving to ESA Contribution benefit in August 2015 no mention was made that the rules regarding occupation pension had changed. Early this year I was told
  2. I have been on incapacity benefit for the last 5 years and it is unlikely I am going to get much better and be able to come off it in te immediate future. I am on 'credits only', which means the DWP pay national insurance contributions for me. adviceguide.org.uk/index/your_money/benefits/national_insurance_contributions_and_benefits.htm It appears that as of the last tax year, these national insurance contributions will no longer be used to calculate the state pension. As the only time I have ever worked was in my teens, is it now the case that I won't get a state pension unless I w
  3. Hi, I know that if you have savings then Incapacity Benefit doesn't take that into consideration as it isn't means tested but I'm wondering if I would still be eligible for it if I rent out a property I own? Many thanks in advance, Macky
  4. Hi, I wanted to see if anybody had experience of my position? I had an medical a couple of years ago and my incapacity benefit was stopped. I took it to tribunal stage. This went in my favour and my benefit was reinstated. In June this year I got an IB50 form in the post and have been asked to go for another medical next week. Does anybody know if my previous tribunal will have any affect on the ATOS decision? Is it possible I will have to go through the whole appeal process again. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
  5. Hi, Really hope someone can help me, i have been claiming I.B. since August 2008 due to mental health, I suffer from severe depression, panic attacks, nightmares, severe anxiety, suicidal thoughts and actions. All this stems from years of physical, emotional and sexual abuse by a now ex partner. I am on several medications to combat all of this, but unfortunately nothing makes it better or makes it go away even for a minute! I recently went for a pca which shortly after found i had been failed on, reading the reasons on the form shocked me, and the person who came with me (as i ca
  6. The Local Authority (LA) has written to inform me that they have cancelled my Housing Benefit (HB) and Council Tax Benefit (CTB) claim because: “You were claiming as a disabled student, but failed to inform us that your Incapacity Benefit ended in February 2010 and you no longer qualify for benefit from that date.” As I now have no other income (except the existing HB payments) I decided to apply for Job Seekers Allowance, which was I eventually awarded last month. “if you are no longer a student (which I'm not) you may still qualify for benefit, please call us if this is the ca
  7. This is a suggestion for a campaign to get the software for LIMA released, please read more here, and please vote as you see fit.
  8. I'm looking for some help on this one, I've had a letter from a company called Iqor demanding £750 for benefit overpayment in 2006. what should I do? Do I have to pay? is there any way I can dispute this?
