    Hello @sharpe1 and welcome to the community. :)

    Could you give us a bit more information about what you're after? Do you mean the refunds some people are owed due to the underpayments between switching from Incapacity Benefit to ESA?

    Hi @sharpe1.

    The DWP are still in the processing of contacting everyone that may have been underpaid. When they do, you'll receive a form to fill out asking about your circumstances over a certain period.
    Some people have already started receiving payouts, others are waiting for their letters. If you think you may have been affected, you could always give them a call and request a form. 
    Hope that helps!
