TOPIC: Switched from Income to Contributions

Switched from Income to Contributions 1 month 2 days ago #219488

I received an updated council tax bill where I was told my council tax support was reduced due to the DWP changing me from income related ESA to contribution related ESA. Has anyone else experienced this? I can't keep having benefits taken off of me.

I guess the obvious question is whether you have stopped receiving ESA(IR) and why?

The amount of ESA money I receive has not altered at all, but, following a change of address, the council have increased how much I pay in council tax, even though the property move was no change in terms of banding. It is this increase, which I am challenging, that has opened up the need to confirm which payment of ESA I am in receipt of, IR or contributions.
I am also in the support group, so thought this dictated I am in the IR type.

You now have two topics about the same subject, please reply to only one of them and I will lock the other.
