Backdated ESA payments
hey I hope somebody could help me because I am FREAKING OUT! I sent my form back about the underpayments from 2011 (well my mum filled it all in because I was terrified of doing it Incase I looked greedy and I generally just worry about all sorts!!) and it is around 12.5 weeks since! I randomly checked my bank this morning and there is a HUGE amount pending to go into my bank, in fact 5 separate amounts (4 of the same and one smaller amount!) but totalling an amount I have never seen in my life! I’m so scared it’s wrong but I daren't ring up to check (anxiety!!) so what do I do? Do they send the payment in smaller amounts I’m sure I read that they can’t pay one single payment above £5,000 before it has to go through MP’s? So do they send smaller amounts to avoid that? Sorry for rambling I’m just So scared and confused 😩😥😩
