Hi spike58 ive waited 18 weeks for mine which is owed to me since 2011 but today DWP gave me the best possible news ever they have received the legal letter from Downing Street to release payments from 2011 and mine will be in my bank next Wednesday . So its been around 19 weeks altogether but DWP did tell me 12 weeks but i waited that 12 weeks to be told they had missed me and not sorted my arrears but thats over now at last. To be on the safe side if i was you i would ring them weekly incase you are missed to, hope this helps.
*UPDATE*sorry for not being in touch. Saturday 8th Sept I received letters telling me that the money to be backdated from 2013 had been processed. Went to the bank 30 mins after reading the mail and had a nice bank balance of £5k plus 4weeks after filling form in (41 days from date on first letter I received telling me I may be entitled to it) HAPPY DAYS even tho it shouldn't of happened in the first place x
Hi Spike im in receipt of high DLA and middle Care my hubby is my carer but i dont get careres all i was told I'm entitled to carer premium my hubby gets state pension i get ESA cb thats it was transferred over from Incapacity benefit to ESA was in wrag 2011/12 won my appeal to be put into Support group in 2013 this is so confusing when hearing people talk about Sdp there's so many different things attached to it and believe it or not im still none the wiser thankyou for replying to me really appreciate it
I can remember claiming Incapacity Benefit & since hearing about the back payments, I await response from DWP to see if I am going to be getting any. I also have heard we will be having to wait up to the end of 2019 to see if we will be entitled to any. If we were claiming Incapacity should we be expecting anything?
