Also, a Written Statement from Minister for Disabled People Sarah Newton dated 21 February 2019 confirms that, by the end of the exercise, the DWP expects to have made around 210,000 arrears payments and an updated Frequently Asked Questions guide has been placed in the House of Commons library.

I note that DWP is still sending out letters that completely wrongly assess IRESA, and/or give the figures for entitlement from a year or more ago.

Just looked at one from Nov 18 - the dreaded last page show entitlement from 2016-17.

Why do they do this?????

Problems are not going to go away completely unless they change the dratted letter completely - and they have not done this, and it appears that they will not do it.

They give you a calculation that covers a different period to the award in the main letter but it’s still the claimant’s responsibility to identify any errors and inform the DWP!
