What should I write in a mandatory reconsideration for sdp
Esa have refused to pay entitled premiums for backdated period and their reason for doing so was they say they wrote to me in 2016,2017,2018 about decisions on my esa claim and said I was not entitled to any premiums and I should have asked them to look at my claim again within 31 days of receiving these letters. I never received such letters nor do I believe that they were sent out in the first place. Whomever made the decisions I was not entitled to premiums had not looked into my circumstances very well as I was in receipt of PIP low rate care comp, income based esa/JSA/housing benefit & living alone. Nobody claimed carers allowance. From what I've read in the news the DWP should have automatically paid this premium. I was unaware of it's existence at the time. Even if they did write to me saying you are in receipt of X amount why should I have questioned their decision-making at the time if I was unaware of a premium for those on pip without paid carers.
