IB to ESA migration

Recommended Posts

Hi I have just discovered that there’s been a DWP blunder when people migrated from IB to ESA.

 

I’ve not been contacted yet but I am just trying to work out If I was one of the affected claimants. When I claimed IB I was also given an Income support top up for my partner as he wasn’t able to claim JSA at the same time.

When I migrated I was put on contributions based ESA for one year and then it changed to IR because I was placed in WRAG group.

 

Am I right in thinking I could have been entitled to both types of ESA? Neither myself or my partner worked at the time and we had no assets or savings at the time.

typically those effected were all written to, but I suppose a few might have slipped the net.

no harm in ringing them up and enquiring.

 

however, I've never heard of people going from ESA to IB just because they were placed in the workgroup...???

you cant get 'both types' of ESA..whatever that is?

Both types of ESA would be income related and contribution based, dx.

Yes people could claim both income related and contributions based ESA at the same time, if they qualified for both.  And obviously if they applied for both.

 

Don't know answer to question being asked about IB to ESA issue. But I believe that I have heard that not all cases where an error may have occured have been identified. 

 

Best route to take, is to raise a complaint by visiting Gov.uk and looking for how to complain. Then provide a letter with full name, address, national insurance number, what benefits were claimed. Just say that you have not been contacted about the IB to ESA error and can they look into this. If you give your telephone number, perhaps they will then call you, if more information is needed.

 

Complaint route may be best, as you are probably too late for any mandatory reconsideration appeal.
