    Good news for some

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-49079053

    Wonder how long it will take for DWP to sort this out?

    If you see my other thread about the managed migration pilot you'll see it may not be cut and dried yet.

    It's good that they have finaly got their fingers out, but....

    Just as with the IB-ESA cockup they are trying to get away with paying less than they should.
    I don't know everything. - But I'm good at searching for, and finding, stuff.

    They will probably drag their feet. Patience will be required.

    Earlier today I saw a report on rightsnet that the first backpayments have already turned up in bank accounts.

    Just how they are prioritising them is unknown.

    The fact that they already had backpayments worked out does show that they always intended to push the legislation through without allowing any debate.
