Hi Sully32

It is nothing to be worried about, DWP are reviewing some ESA claims going back in time, I have known a number of people recently who have been given backdated payments, so it could be good news from DWP.

Hi Peter

It's just a review and as Gary said in the previous post, some people have benefited financially. If you can't remember just say so. I am sure there are many people in your position. No it shouldn't affect current or future benefits.
