Hi, I would be over the moon if someone could possibly give me any information on my dilemma :???:


Ok, back in August 2010 I was transferred from Income Support to ESA, I was in receipt also of low rate mobility which I received a 4 weekly amount and an extra £20 something included in with my Income Support. When I was transferred on to the new ESA benefit, I was told that I would continue to receive the same amount of benefit I was getting with Income Support.


I finally, after many re-booked medical assessments got a decision stating I am fit for work. I appealed with the help of an advisor and won my case on 14th February 2012 being placed in the WRAG. My advisor told me I should receive all my backdated payments within 6 weeks. After many phone calls due to not receiving my appeals notice award which was posted twice and faxed 3 times :-x The DWP have told me I am not due any arrears as they have paid them already, I am lost as I received an extra DLA component only with my ESA basic rate, can they count this component as being the same as being on the main phase??


I discontinued to receive DLA in November 2011 & my ESA went down with the effect.........HELP PLEASE......THANKS

Thanks Nystagmite, but any idea on any backdated payments once I won my appeal that I was not fit for work and placed in the main stage WRAG? Am I still entitled to nearly 2 years of the extra component? Thanks

How much money were you getting in total each week ? I was in receipt of income support of £93 a week up to the point when I failed my medical. When I won my tribunal, they backdated the £6 difference between my IS rate and my support group rate. I also got the disability premium, but only got that because I was in support group.

will I still be entitled to the back pay from the 14th week or do they take my DLA into consideration and count it, even though the dwp letters state that my DLA is NOT counted as income towards my claim for ESA (IR)? REALLY CONFUSED AN DON'T HAVE A CLUE WHAT TO DO OTHER THAN.......... "NOTHING":???::!: THANKS
