    • Exactly why the other folk resigned.   Not even because they seriously breached the rules like Rasputin, but that ANY infringement by those in power undermines whole process then, now and going forward   As is happening with every hour this goes on.   He should have 'resigned' or been sacked back in April when Johnsons office were first asked about it. Not allowed to carry on in his job or his (alleged) breaches.          
    • I think this political spat that is happening could have very serious consequences in the near future.   With the Summer weather now with us and people wishing to enjoy holidays, as well as day breaks away from home, I can see the social distancing measures totally breaking down.   Weston Super Mare Hospital has had to warn that they cannot take in any more patients A&E, due to a large increase in Covid-19 cases.     These coastal resorts if they start having large numbers of visitors, may see a rise in Covid-19 cases and this will spread, causing the country to suffer a major second outbreak of the virus.   Dominic Cummings is one man, but it is what the news story may cause, that is the problem.   Spain is saying they would welcome British holidaymakers from July, but the Government will require a 14 day quarantine when they land back at home.  I can see many people either totally ignoring the quarantine requirement or just not going back to work for the 14 days, trying to take the time off sick.       
    • Haven't they already implemented changes that allow the tracking and tracing, with or without permission, of people who have or are suspected to have, or are suspected to have come in contact with someone who is suspected to have ..  coronavirus ...   Meets ALL of those criteria doeesn't he   Sure I posted the link earlier in the thread (not the NHSx app - changes to security laws)    
    • At the point they left for Durham only she was showing symptoms. I think it's reasonable that as her husband he feared he may be incapacitated by the virus and indeed he was. I'm not defending him - far from it, just interested in establishing the facts.       As I understand it, it's not certain what security issue Cummings senior approached the police about.     There won't be any investigation, he'll be gone before anyone gets the chance to start one. He's finished and good riddance to him.
    • I rather suspect that any investigation will favour Demonic's version of events and let him off scott free.

A friend of mine passed away in September, the day after (23.09.14.) the DWP I.B. ESA and PIP offices were made aware of his death.


A payment for PIP was made into his bank account on 26.09.14. and ESA on 30.09.14.


Now the DWP are asking for the money to be returned.


Is this money recoverable as they were informed of his death prior to them releasing the payments?


Any advice would be grateful.


Thanks, Joe

I'm sorry to hear of your loss.


ESA is paid in arrears, and a person is eligible for payment up to and including their date of death. If the payment made on the 30th includes any amount for any period after that, that amount is recoverable from the estate. The fact that the ESA section was informed prior to release of the payments is not relevant since, as Citizenkain said, payments are issued by computer and it may simply have been too late to prevent them from being sent out.


I'm afraid I don't know about the rules for DLA, sorry.




The idea that all politicians lie is music to the ears of the most egregious liars.
