    70,000 ESA claimants to be repaid 1000s

    Hi All..

    I've only just come across this recently and am in the process of checking whether my husband has been affected because he has been on benefits since 2009. Apparently following a check by the National Audit Office they found that since 2011 the DWP has underpaid an estimated 70,000 people who transferred to ESA from other benefits. Average payout is 2,500 I believe and apparently the DWP is contacting those people affected automatically (yeah right) but thought I should post what I've read. You can find out more by googling that heading above.

    Maybe it's coming my way, Boiler,

    I'll buy you a beer when it comes through.

    Cheers Terry
