Government could pay out more than £1bn due to benefits 'shambles'

 

 

The government could pay out more than £1bn in back payments after finding out that tens of thousands of people claiming sickness and disability benefits have been underpaid.

 

Due to a "historic error" at the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), 180,000 people claiming Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) have been underpaid and may be owed an average of £5,000 each.

 

The blunders date back to between 2011 and 2014, when claimants were switched over from incapacity benefit.

True to form it gives no information on how or who to contact in order for them to look at your case.


Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!

I got my form sent today and called them to confirm if it was legitimate and it was. There's a disability premium and severe disability premium that should of been added when the transition happen, however incompetent dwp workers probably not trained or told to add it on. Some people say they received over £10,000 of backdated payments.
