    Yep, I’ll give them a call and hopefully get one sent out. Although honestly I think I will be driven to insanity but the first chord of the Four Seasons.

    Thanks nukecad. We’re definitely going to see someone at the CAB as soon as they can possibly fit us in (though this might be a little while as the local one is absolutely swamped with people). I’m...
  3. Wow lindyloo, thank you for all that information....

    Wow lindyloo, thank you for all that information. I agree, they make it almost impossible to understand anything.

    I should clarify that mum started receiving her private pension in May 2018 and...
  4. There are actually two things they printed off....

    There are actually two things they printed off. the first is a letter that says

    “Thank you for your request for information. The details are as follows:- You were awarded Employment and Support...

    Hi lindyloo, thank you for your input. The whole situation seems to be a confusing mess for everyone. I can add a couple of things that will hopefully add a little clarity. Mum went to the Job Centre...
  6. As an aside, nukecad, on the latest email from...

    As an aside, nukecad, on the latest email from the council it shows the HB Tribunal as a different address to the CTS Tribunal. One seems to be the Independent Tribunal Service and the other is the...
  7. My mum struggles with her mental health so she’s...

    My mum struggles with her mental health so she’s finding this whole thing awful but I’m stubborn enough to take it as far as it’s able to go on her behalf.

    You’re right, they must be doing this...
  8. Thank you for all this support nukecad. It really...

    Thank you for all this support nukecad. It really is making all the difference to know that someone seems to know what they’re talking about and is backing us up. I’m hoping it won’t have to go as...

    Hi nukecad.

    The lady at the housing place didn’t really know much about the benefits side of it so she’s given our stuff to a caseworker who should hopefully get back in touch with us next week....
  10. Well, we went back to the council and they are...

    Well, we went back to the council and they are now saying that the original decision is correct and the award is based on the higher amount of contribution based ESA. We’re heading to the local...

    I’m back with some unfortunate news. Mum had an email from the council tonight stating that the council will not change their decision. They first put that we didn’t appeal the decision within a...

    Hi nukecad

    From the calculations I’ve done of what mum is now owed, it should put us well into credit with the HA. We think we’ll probably just leave it there as we’ll be paying the £15.60 a week...
  13. Hi nukecad Just wanted to let you know that I...

    Hi nukecad

    Just wanted to let you know that I went to the council today and they have agreed that mum has always been entitled to full HB (minus the non dependent deduction) and they’ve put it...
  14. Hi nukecad Thank you so much for coming back...

    Hi nukecad

    Thank you so much for coming back with that. I’ll take all that and the paperwork to the council with me and make sure they understand that they’ve interpreted something wrong along...
  15. I should add that we went through some paperwork...

    I should add that we went through some paperwork and the mystery £28.74 is most likely from a small private pension mum has. Would this affect the HB entitlement at all?
  16. If that’s the case it’ll be a massive relief....

    If that’s the case it’ll be a massive relief. I’ll head to the council on Monday and make sure they understand mum is entitled to IR ESA as well. Fingers crossed it’ll mean they stop taking any...
  17. Hi nukecad, thank you so much for getting back to...

    Hi nukecad, thank you so much for getting back to me.

    My dad hasn’t been working and wasn’t at any point while my mum has been claiming ESA. He’s been getting CA for me for a few years now. I’ve...

    Hi, I'm really hoping someone here will be able to clarify some things for me.

    I'm asking on behalf of my mother who has been in the ESA Support Group since April 2018. We thought she was just on...

    Yes, the letter stated that they couldn't pay me ESA from May 26th. I'll get in touch with them and let them know, I don't want to be in trouble for it.

    On a side note, the DM on the phone told...

    I started receiving ESA Support Group in Feb 2016 but after my WCA in May 2017, I was awarded 0 points. I received a call on May 24th from a DM telling me...

    Well, the call went exactly how I thought it would. I've gone from the Support Group last year to 0 points this year. They've advised me to claim Universal Credit but I'm not sure that's a good idea....

    Thank you to both of you.

    I know the PIP and ESA descriptors are different, I just meant that seeing as I got the Support Group on the basis of a mobility issue, you'd think that would qualify me...

    Hi,
