Sdp unpaid 2014-2017 seeking backpay. Any reasons why dwp could refuse?
I was living alone on esa/jsa in receipt of pip care component so was eligible at the time but was not informed of the benefit that should have automatically been added to the esa claim despite esa being aware of my pip award. I am now on receipt of UC, pip and still living alone I am aware I will not be entitled to SDP since starting UC but does the UC claim give the dwp reason to deny paying what is owed? Please if somebody has any experience with this or anything to add that may put my mind at rest that would be great. I have already spoken to the enquiry staff and filled in the is10 over the phone but I will write a letter tomorrow as well.
