TOPIC: esa migration date in news section

Re:esa migration date in news section 7 years 3 months ago #14491

If we 'assume' that a migration policy is implemented from October 2010 and that they do not follow the pre existing review date set for PCA in existing cases, then there is potential for the abuse of discretion by Decision Makers, who may choose to apply the migration as summary punishment for awkward customers who have complained/appealed about DWP/from decisions, in the past.
But thats just my suspicious mind.. so dont take it too seriously.
I rather think though that by now the DWP ought to have made it in someway clear roughly how migration will work and whether or not the IB benefit rate will be the subject of transitionalo protection. If it isnt then me (and other like me) stand to lose around 15 pounds a week or so, even if we pass the new test.

I dont like the 'silence' from DWP on how this will work and whether there will be transitional protection

Hi Crazydiamond

It is good advice but at the moment she is too ill and like many others, too frightened to make waves. I on the other hand have had about as much as I can take of DWP. I will ring the Benefit Enquiry Line by the end of the week.
