Backdating income support

6854933580_2c8b688306_z

I had been on Income Support and Incapacity Benefit up until then, they then gave me the Employment Support Allowance test, I do not feel that I am fit enough to sign on as available for work. The rules for staying on ESA pending appeal have changed recently get advice first as it may be you are unable to get ESA pending your appeal and will be forced to claim Jobseekers........................................................................................... My husband has been sacked from his job, he is worried about signing on, as he feels that his Income Based Jobseekers Allowance will be reduced because he was sacked, we have two children, ages, 7 and 10, the youngest child has Disability Living Allowance, middle rate care component, due to asthma, I have Carers Allowance for looking after him, and Child Benefit, can you advise? Any Jobseekers sanction is not automatic when you are dismissed from a job, however to be safe, we suggest that you become the claimant for the family. Personal allowance (couple rate) 114.85Due to Carers Allowance (carer premium) 34.60This is your families weekly applicable amount 149.45Less your weekly income(Carers Allowance) 62.10Total Income Support payable = 149.45 weekly- less weekly income 62.10 = 87.35 weekly IS due Your son's Disability Living Allowance will be ignored.As you are a carer, you do not have to be available for work, and are eligible for Income Support. They will insist that you claim Child Tax Credits for the child additions previously paid in old Income Support claims........................................................................................... You are allowed to earn up to 20 per week before it will effect your Income Support, let the local Benefits Agency know that you are working, and earning, just in-case someone else does it for you............................................................................................. My son will be 16 in two months time, he will be going into special needs fifth year after the summer, he has high rate mobility and middle rate care components of Disability Living Allowance, I only have Child Benefit for him andbasic Child Tax Credits weekly, my partner works full-time, is he able to claim any other benefits at age 16? Yes if he can get a sick-line from his Doctor and as he has DLA, you would have to give up Child Benefit for him, then he will be eligible for Employment Support Allowance at 16 in his own right while in full-time non advanced education, he could receive over 100 weekly, his Disability Living Allowance will be ignored in the calculation.PM me if you'd rather not discuss the reasons why in public.You are probably not entitled to back-dating, but you have not asked for back-dating ... You should get benefit from the date of your first claim (assuming that you are entitled) regardless of how long it takes to sort out. Firstly, the date of the claim in some ways is misconstrued.This new Income Support claim will also get you full help with your Rent and Council Tax as well as many other passport benefitsthat go with any Income Support claim............................................................................................. I am off work sick, and only have Statutory Sick Pay of 88.45 weekly, I have a partner who does not work, and two children aged 6 13, other income is Child Tax Credits, and 2,000 in savings, which are going down as we have 60 weekly rent to pay. Personal allowance (couple rate) 114.85This is your weekly applicable amount 114.85Less income Statutory Sick Pay88.45Total Income Support payable = 114.85 - income 88.45 = 26.40 weekly Income Support payable.As you have under 6,000 in savings they will be ignored in the calculation, claim on 0800 0 55 66 88 or on form A1 from your local job-centre office, this claim form also includes Housing Benefit and Council Tax Benefit claim forms............................................................................................. This is correct as you are now working over 16 hour per week, you should be claiming Working Tax Credits and Child Tax Creditsto top up your low wages backdated to when you started working, your entitlement could be about 220 per week, Tax Credits could give entitlement to other benefits........................................................................................... I am a single female aged 63, I have little income, and no savings, my retirement pension is 69.50 weekly and I have a small occupational pension of 51.50 weekly, I own my house (no mortgage), and pay full Council Tax Benefit can I claim any other help? Yes, you can claim Pension Creditas you are over the normal retirement age (See note below), but not Income Support as its for people under the State Pension Age for women, as you are over Pensionable age, and have less income than you need to live on. Personal allowance (single person) 151.20This is your weekly applicable amount 151.20Less your income Retirement pension 69.50Occupational pension 51.50Total Pension Credit payable = 151.20 weekly- less weekly income 121 = 30.20 weekly Pension Credit payable Claims can be backdated for three months or from when you turned Pensionable age, form available by phoning 0800 99 1234, this also has claim forms for Council Tax Benefit............................................................................................ I have been told to sign on for Jobseekers Allowance , as I have been found fit for work by the Benefits Agency, following an examination by their health care professional. You could sign on as available for work, and you would receive the allowance for a single person, (73.10) or you could ask the DWP to look again at thedecision this is called a mandatory reconsideration (MR), if following this MR the decision is unchanged you can appeal it and go back onto ESA pending the appeal andget 73.10 weekly until the appeal is held, you will get full arrears of all benefit due to you if you are successful at the appeal.They said I would recieve cash from the 6th December as thats when my case hit their desk (or words to that effect). It has to be done by letter (there is no form to backdate, unlike other benefits), and you have to show why the date of the claim should be before the date at which your claim has been started.I'll gladly help, but need much more info before I can.

Note: The age that men and women can still claim Income Support is getting higher and is linked to the age a woman can start to get their Old Age Pension, check Hereto find this date.

Set amounts are used for different needs, and are added together to reach the amount the law says you need to live on (your applicable amount).

Any income, worked out under Income Support rules, is deducted from your applicable amount.

We have decided we cannot pay you income support from 25/08/06." Obviously they have the dates wrong for some reason (god knows whats happening or has gone wrong this time) and also they say they cant pay me from that date as the law gives a list of special reasons that allow claims to be backdated, and they can only backdate it if the reason is on the list.

Note how they do not mention if me reasons were on the list or not!

This will leave the amount of Income Support you are entitled to receive. I am a lone parent with four children aged 14, 12, 7, and 2, Iwork part time earning 92 weekly forworking 12 hours, I also have Child Tax Credits at 240 weekly and Child Support from my ex-partner at 200 weekly can I get Income Support?
