    From the Disability News Service;

    Some good news for people interested in what the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) knew about potential problems, and any actions or inactions that resulted.

    (The Disability News Service has been a constant source of breaking news and information which is ignored by the Mainstream, and has been treated appallingly by the DWP Press Office) http://www.disabilitynewsservice.co...o-ban-questions-from-disability-news-service/

    From what I understand, if you are denied a benefit wrongly, you get your money backdated, but then you have to claim other money back as a maladministration claim.

    Underpayments due to claimant or official error was £1.4 billion in 2012, and £1.5 billion in 2014/15.
