I wrote a post on here a while ago saying I had been given an esa payment when I had been put on jsa. I have now found out why! I went to the jobcentre today and I was told it was back dated from 2012 when I did start to claim income support. Turns out it they had underpaid me. I was asked at the jobcentre why I only claimed income support for a few weeks. I said it was because I had been told that I was only able to get it if I gave up working for myself and stopped doing my voluntary work. I was told by the job centre that was wrong. Why do some people who should know what they are talking know absolutely nothing.
