Many people who have been moved from the old Incapacity Benefit to its replacement, Employment Support Allowance (ESA), are being underpaid through no fault of their own. We have seen cases where people have been told they are not entitled to extra income related ESA when in fact they are.
The unsuspecting claimant knows nothing about this as they assume the amount they are paid is correct and have no means to check the figures.
This could affect thousands of people nationwide who are being underpaid. We recommend every claimant of ESA has their award checked.
Benefit Information Services are offering a free check to see if your ESA is being paid at the correct amount. For further information ring 0330 606 1463, text “ESA Check” to 07833 491985 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
