Sometimes they add it to your payments without having to apply, or else send out a letter saying you might be entitled to additional money, and to complete a review form to see if you are. If you are entitled but receive no such letter, then phone or write asking for a review form, so the top-up can be assessed and added to your benefits :)

Good luck, Fairy Lu, I hope you get the monies you are due :)

I would call them Fairy Lu and ask did they get your form and how long will you have to wait.

Keep chasing it up, Lu - if you are entitled to that money, make sure you get it. It's hard enough experiencing strained and difficult emotional health, without being cheated out of entitlements and skint as well. In fact, not having enough to live on can make us worse :)

I hope all goes well. Keep us posted, and please try not to get too ground down and stressed :)
