I’ve had a medical assessment and now been told that I am fit to work and my benefits will be stopped, What can I do?

Getting evidence of your medical problems can help to have your ESA and/or Incapacity benefit re-instated and assist at an appeal.

I’ve been notified that I’ve been overpaid benefit, do I have to pay it back?

Possibly, overpayment cases are frequently based on mistakes or the rules being misunderstood. It is worth discussing your situation with a laser who may be able to get the overpayment amount reduced or judged non-repayable.

I am unhappy with the decision made by the DWP, what can I do?

You should ask for a mandatory reconsideration. When requesting the reconsideration clearly state why you are disputing the decision and if possible send in supporting evidence.

I’m receiving housing benefit, what do I do about a rent increase?

Take your rent increase letter to your local authority housing benefit department. You may also have to let the housing benefits department know of any changes.

NB. examples of FAQ’s not to be considered legal advice.
