    Hi Charlie

    Normally the decision letter will tell you
    Is this due to a review or tribunal decision ?

    I haven’t had a decision letter yet I had a phone call after a reconsideration

    Ah OK
    You may well get the back dated money before the letter arrives. Sometimes they do act quickly Just keep an eye on your account

    I don't wish to be difficult but I do not think that using an email address as a nickname is suitable as it could potentially cause the person concerned issues. Perhaps a moderator should have pointed this out and suggested a new login and nickname?

    I do very much agree hear, not a good idea at all for personal reasons, as said could cause issues,there's some dodgy people out there.!

    I have changed the title of this discussion so it's not an email address.

    If you spot things like this in future, click on the flag link under the post and then report. This will bring it to our attention.

    Thanks, have a good evening.
