...Are they legit or has someone got access to private information and is using it?

 

I did have a text when I applied for JSA but I have been on ESA a few weeks now and never got anything until a few minutes ago which is strange unless the system had a fault and the message was delayed. It basically said:

 

"Your ESA has been awarded. We will confirm this by letter. We need fit notes/medical certificates in order to pay you"

It's legit - the messages are scheduled and are sent out automatically

Yes, these are legit, I've had lots of these through my ESA claim just giving me status updates on things and letting me know when they've received post from me.

Yes, best not to give them the number, though it can sometimes be helpful as I was due to sign on a while ago but it was on a day of industrial action so the JC sent me a text telling me I was excused signing and to attend next fortnight. At least it saved me £6 bus fare for a wasted journey.

Worry not, I think well ahead and have done since I signed on. I have my every day phone (contract smartphone) for emails, calendar and general use and an old PAYG phone for things like DWP which I check daily
