Reply To: ESA terminated back to 2016 – not entitled


[quote=VFenton]His ESA was terminated this week back to July 2016.  According to CIS he was not entitled to ESA following a failed IS tribunal in 2016 and his ESA claim was therefore paid in error.[/quote]


[quote=VFenton]I have advised the claimant to contact DWP as he needs to get some benefits in pay, but my problem is how to treat the past 18 months as the claimant was definitely in receipt of ESA so I cannot add zero income to cover the period.[/quote]


Fact is he received payments, albeit he wasn't entitled to it, honestly can't see any overpayments in this case, unless there are other issues that affect entitlement?
