    Yes but not everyone will be affected. It's mostly those that were transfered for Incapacity benefit many years ago. If they owe any money to people DWP will be in touch.

      As i already stated it's not everyone. It's for those that were transfered from Incapacity benefit many years ago and even if you were on this benefit then it doesn't mean you'll be one of those underpaid.

      Hi Ladyofstress

                     I'm not great on the fone but will ask my partner to fone for me when she comes in.

        Did you find out the criteria for getting it? I'm just trying to find out more from the internet now.

           Thank you

         Andrew

      Yes get your partner to phone but they will want to speak to you first, they just ask a couple of security questions to make sure it’s you , yes google dwp underpayments and good luck Andrew .

      It's the premiums that are added on. Those on IB were on Contribution Based and some didn't have the Income related top ups added, which would be the premiums. For the premiums it would depend on what group ESA you're in and whether or not you recieve DLA/PIP.

      The guy that my partner spoke to said there was nothing on his system regarding this. He also said he knew nothing about this so will wait a few days and try again and hopefully get someone different.
